Counseling Program

Whether you are pursuing a Master's (61 credit hours) or Doctorate (72 credit hours) in Counselor Education and Supervision or a career as a professional school counselor or mental health counselor, the University of Wyoming may be the place for you!

We welcome those who enjoy small-class environments, intensive class discussions, and opportunities for self-direction, self-reflection, and scholarly activity. All our required counseling courses are Face-to-Face (F2F) at both locations UW-Laramie or UWC-Casper. Our faculty members encourage and support both the self-examination and growth of our students and the development of state-of-the-art, research-based counseling competencies. Our programs promote creativity, divergent thinking, and experiential learning amid a community atmosphere, in which informal faculty and student interactions are the norm.

Master's and doctoral programs at the University of Wyoming-Laramie are CACREP accredited, while UWC programs are in the process of accreditation. Read more about our accreditation.
