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 certiﬁcation 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
