Master's Level Externship

The UNCW Counseling Center is currently not able to offer this training opportunity. If you have any questions about training, please call the center at (910) 962-3746.

The externship is envisioned as the capstone training experience for appropriately prepared graduate students in Counseling, Clinical Social Work or Psychology. This experience is viewed as a crucial time for the assimilation and integration of knowledge and skills in order to assist the professional and personal development of the extern. Candidates who wish to extern at the UNCW Counseling Center should be prepared to make a commitment for one academic year, from August through May.

The training programs are competitive and as staffing allows, we may provide opportunities for 1-2 students per semester. These programs are intensive and require a major commitment of your time. Students who successfully complete a program will have greater knowledge and experience in addressing the mental health needs of the college student population.


If you have difficulty accessing any information from the Counseling Center web pages or other information throughout our site, please contact us by telephone at 910-962-3746 or by email at and we will provide alternatives.
