The M.S. in Counseling program prepares graduates for counseling professions in a variety of settings, including independent practices, substance abuse treatment centers, hospitals, schools, and many more. Students choose a concentration in Mental Health Counseling or School Counseling. Students learn a variety of counseling theories and are supported to create their own style and theory of counseling. The master's degree program is 61 credit hours. Full-time students can complete their chosen specialty in a 2-year period, beginning courses during the summer of their initial year (6-9 credit hours each summer and 9-12 credit hours each spring and fall). Actual counseling sessions with clients begin in our on-campus Counselor Education Training Clinic during the fall of the first year with practicum courses continuing throughout the spring semester, followed by supervised internships at various field sites. Clinical work is complemented by academic content courses which assist students in developing their own counselor identity and professional role to empower and advocate for their clients as well as be leaders in our global society. Our programs are fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
