    Program_master program

The Virginia Tech Counselor Education Master's program is a full-time, two year, 60 credit hour program located at the Roanoke Higher Education Center. The program is facilitated by core faculty in the state-of-the-art Counselor Education Clinic. The first semester of the program consists of classroom study, and beginning in the second semester students are engaged in clinical study throughout the remainder of their program.

Students who graduate with a master's degree in the school counseling track are qualified and endorsed by the faculty for licensure/certification as school counselors by the Virginia Department of Education. They may also accrue supervision hours toward the Licensed Professional Counselor credential awarded by the Virginia Department of Health Professions while serving as a school counselor.

Those who graduate with a master's degree in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling track may be employed in community mental health settings which do not require licensure, and they accrue the required supervision hours toward licensure (LPC) by the Virginia Department of Health Professions in those settings.
