Counselor Development

There are three dimensions to your development as a counselor:

  • Your personal growth and development (you as a person who counsels)
  • Your intellectual growth and development (your professional knowledge)
  • Your counseling skill set

Our curriculum is designed to address all three dimensions, inspiring personal growth, building professional knowledge and honing counseling skills. These aspects of counselor development are important to all counseling students irrespective of their specific career path.

The internship is the heart of the master’s degree program in Counseling at UB. It provides a venue within which students receive the guidance necessary for development as an entry-level counselor. Program faculties provide didactic and experiential training, serving as the foundation for the development of skills necessary for independent work in clinical settings.
