The Post-Master Fellowship is designed to prepare individuals for a staff position in a University Counseling Center, with particular emphasis on Counselors or Social Workers wishing to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. The Fellowship is designed to meet partial requirements for licensure in the State of North Carolina. Clinical Supervision will be provided. The first year of the Fellowship begins August 1, 2018 and ends July 31, 2019. 

North Carolina State University Counseling Center invites applications for a one year, full-time, 12-month position as Post-Master’s Fellow. The position is on a year-to-year basis and can be renewed for a second (and final) year if the Fellow and Training Staff are in agreement. We expect to have 3 positions available this year.  Each year of the fellowship will offer a different specialized training focus, in order to provide Fellows with the flexibility to work in a variety of settings. 

The Counseling Center assists NC State University students experiencing personal, academic or vocational problems. The goal of the Counseling Center is to provide students with professional counseling services and outreach to help them cope with issues that may impede successful academic performance. The Counseling Center also offers crisis intervention and psychological/psychiatric assessment as well as consultation with others who have concerns about the mental/emotional state of NC State University students. Our services are primarily short-term in nature and we make referrals to other helping professionals and community agencies as appropriate.


As a land-grant institution, NC State itself was born as an idea: that higher education should bring economic, societal and intellectual prosperity to the masses. From our origins teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts, we’ve grown to become a pre-eminent research enterprise that advances knowledge in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles and veterinary medicine.
Our students, faculty and staff take problems in hand and work with industry, government and nonprofit partners to solve them. Our 34,000-plus high-performing students apply what they learn in the real world, through research, internships, co-ops and world-changing service. That experiential education ensures they leave here with career-ready skills. And those skills come at a reasonable cost: NC State consistently rates as one of the best values in higher education.
