Our counseling minor, open to all UB undergraduate students regardless of your major, is designed to be a pre-professional sequence of courses in the counseling field. This minor will prepare you for entry level positions in social service agencies or prepare you for graduate studies in counseling, psychology, social work or a related helping profession. This program does not lead to licensure to practice counseling.
The features of our program include:
|Academic minor completed||Counseling |
|Credits required for completion||18|
|Time to completion||2 to 3 semesters|
|Course delivery||On campus, online or hybrid|
We strongly recommended that you apply for this minor one and a half years prior to graduating, as long as you meet the below requirements. This will allow you to complete the required courses in time for graduating. There is a risk of not being able to complete the required coursework if you apply later than this recommended time.
Students in the counseling minor will be given priority to seats in the classes needed for the minor.
