Master's-Level Internship Training Program

Page address:


***Thank you for your interest in training at the MSU Counseling Center.  Due to receiving a high volume of applicants, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year.


The Counseling Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato offers counseling, outreach, consultation, crisis intervention, and referral services to enrolled Minnesota State students.  The majority of clients seen at the Counseling Center range in age from 18 - 28, and presenting concerns range from normative developmental issues to Axis I and Axis II diagnoses.  The most common presenting concerns are depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. 
Master's-level interns in the Counseling Center will spend the majority of their time providing individual counseling to students.  Interns are also expected to provide two outreach presentations on a psychoeducational topic during the year, and may volunteer to work on other outreach, programming, or research efforts offered through the Counseling Center as time and interest permit.  Interns will receive at least one hour of individual supervision from doctoral-level Counseling Center staff, as well as one and a half hours of group supervision per week. Clinical staff at the Counseling Center consists of five full-time psychologists with a variety of theoretical orientations. 
Internships follow the academic calendar, beginning with the start of the fall semester and continuing through the end of spring semester with breaks while classes are not in session (winter break and spring break). Please note that students who have previously received counseling from the Minnesota State Mankato Counseling Center are not eligible for the internship program. 
Students interested in applying should submit an application, letter of intent, resume or vita, and unofficial graduate transcripts to:
