Counseling Curriculum

We help you devise a program of study that reflects your interests and supports your career goals. Best of all, we will work with you to establish an optimum schedule that fits into your life. You may enroll on a part-time or full-time basis, and our courses are offered in the evening, all year long.

Visit the 2015-2016 School of Graduate Studies catalog counseling, master of science page for more course details and program requirements.


We offer four specializations:

  • Mental health counseling
  • Marriage and family counseling
  • Industrial/organizational counseling
  • Applied behavior analysis 

All specializations lead to eligibility as a mental health counselor. In addition, if you complete the marriage and family counseling specialization you are eligible for licensure in that field.

Practicum and Internship

All students must complete a practicum and internship, both of which can be individualized to meet your needs. The practicum includes experiences such as direct service work with clients and individual and group supervision. The internship, which occurs after the practicum, allows you to perform activities that a regularly-employed staff member would be expected to perform.
