Second Informational session on master's degree in counseling held at UMFK

April 6, 2015


The University of Maine at Fort Kent, in collaboration with the University of Southern Maine, will host a second informational session for individuals interested in earning a Master of Science in Counseling degree. The session occurs on Friday, April 10 at 5:30 p.m. in the Grindle conference room located in Cyr Hall.

The Fort Kent meeting will provide information for a program UMFK supports so people in Aroostook County can earn a USM master's degree without leaving the area. Classes mostly are through distance education technologies such as the following: ITV (interactive television), videoconferencing, and online. There also are three classes that organizers will offer on the UMFK campus.

The Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) provides a national accreditation for the USM master's program, and students who complete the three-and-a-half year program will be eligible for national certiļ¬cation as a rehabilitation counselor. Those students who decide to take an additional two classes of targeted coursework will be eligible for state mental health counseling licensure as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC).

For more information and to register, please contact UMFK local liaison and Assistant Professor of Human Services Shawn Graham at 834-8627 or
