About

Counselors can change lives.

That’s one of the many reasons we’re excited about the work we are doing at UWM and why we’re deeply committed to training multiculturally competent counselors who are ready to use their skills to help clients in urban environments.

Counselors help individuals resolve personal and social problems. Although a minimum of a master’s degree is required to be a professional counselor, the helping skills and developmental perspectives that form the foundation of counseling are applicable to many professions.

The Counseling minor is designed for undergraduate students who are interested in careers in professional psychology (counseling psychology, clinical psychology, or school psychology) or related fields such as school counseling, rehabilitation counseling, or mental health counseling, social work, nursing, allied health professions.
