Graduate Assistantships

Typically, master’s-level students serve as Clinic Resource Assistants, and are responsible for screening, scheduling, and recording sessions. At the doctoral level, graduate assistants are responsible for outreach, special projects, and group, individual, couple, and family counseling services. Each year one graduate assistant acts as coordinator of the SIP, AMP, and Making Better Choices programs, which are aimed at working with UNC Greensboro students who may need additional support to succeed within the University setting.


Internships

Master’s and doctoral-level internships are available in the Clinic. In addition, the Jack Bardon Fellowship offers one carefully chosen master’s or doctoral level student a stipend for an internship in the Clinic each academic year.
