Counseling Psychology Degrees in Wisconsin
(found programs from 1623 schools)

There are several online psychology degrees, as well as campus based programs available in Wisconsin, especially if you are leaning toward a counseling focus. While many schools offer Bachelor's level programs, you may want to look into graduate degrees in counseling psychology if you plan to enter clinical practice. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is just one of several colleges to offer graduate and doctorate degrees in counseling psychology.

Along with state licensure, these are often the credentials preferred by employers once you enter the clinical realm of practice. The core competencies in a psychology counseling graduate degree program usually include:

  • Case Conceptualization
  • Counseling Skills
  • Multicultural Counseling
  • Professional Ethics
  • Presentation and Consulting Skills
  • Chemical Dependency Counseling

Most graduate degree programs require anywhere from 18 months to three years of additional schooling beyond the bachelor degree. If you plan to enter a doctorate program immediately after earning a master's degree, you can plan to devote up to six years to additional study after completing an undergraduate program.

After earning an advanced degree, you must fulfill all licensing requirements by the Wisconsin Examining Board of Marriage & Family Therapists, Professional Counselors and Social Workers if you want to practice clinically. Qualifications to earn the credential of Licensed Professional Counselor include:
