MS Counseling Psychology

Career Opportunities

This MSCP program prepares students to become Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs) in the State of South Carolina and potentially other states. Students should contact their state’s boards for specific details.

LPCs are employed and provide mental health care in a wide variety of settings:

  • Private practices
  • College counseling centers
  • Churches
  • Hospitals
  • Mental health and social service agencies
  • Schools

LPCs help people manage and overcome mental and emotional disorders and problems with family and other relationships. They listen to clients and ask questions to help the clients understand their problems and develop strategies to improve their lives.

Does counseling fit my personality?

Take the Myers Briggs-based free assessment to find out! 

INFJs or “Advocates” need to find meaning in their work and to know that they are helping and connecting with people.

INFPs or “Mediators” will prefer a still more personal touch, being able to work face-to-face with clients, seeing that their personal effort really impacts another’s quality of life, taking pride in the progress and growth they help to foster.

ESFJs or “Consuls” usually find analytical careers are often too dull– they need human interaction and emotional feedback to be truly satisfied in their line of work as good listeners and enthusiastic team members.

This is not a definitive list of course, however, it may be insightful in discovering your career calling.
