C.G.S. in Advanced Counseling

The C.G.S. in Advanced Counseling is a certificate program which enables students who already have a master’s degree, which is fewer than 60 credits, to obtain 60 credits needed for licensure as a mental health counselor in the State of Rhode Island. Students will be able to take from 15-27 credits depending on the number of credits they need for licensure. Core courses in counseling practica and internship (a total of 12 credits) will be required of all C.G.S. candidates. Other credits are determined based on the needs of the candidate (see “C.G.S. in Advanced Counseling” for a full description of the C.G.S. in Advanced Counseling).
