The mission of the Counseling and Development Program at Winthrop University is to provide an intellectually stimulating and supportive environment for the professional development of school and clinical mental health counselors who are committed to the skill sets and best practice in their roles as clinicians, advocates, and consultants. The program strives to prepare culturally competent, culturally sensitive, and ethical counselors to work effectively in a technological and pluralistic society. The faculty designs and delivers academic and clinical experiences for all our students in ways that recognize, respect, and value the diversity of students' backgrounds, characteristics, beliefs, and abilities. 

The priority admission deadline for the Counseling and Development Program is December 15th for summer admission. All admission materials must be received by the Graduate School office on or before this date. The program is a summer admission only program. If there remain openings in the cohort after the priority deadline, the Admissions Committee will consider applications submitted prior to March 15th. Candidates are strongly encouraged to submit their applications by December 15th to ensure review of their materials.
