Students will take the core program, including electives relating to the chosen area of concentration; the comprehensive examination, which is an integral part of the program; and demonstrate proficiency in counseling skills during a one semester Practicum and a two-semester Internship.
A total of sixty (60) credits is required for the Clinical Mental Health track, and fifty-four (54) credits is required for the School Counseling track. A description of each course can be found in the Graduate Studies Course Catalog.
Students may take up to six years to complete the program; a student's program begins at the time the first course, transfer or otherwise, is taken. The program accepts new students only for Fall semester. A thesis is not required, but may be done in lieu of six credits of elective study.
Courses are arranged in a three-level sequence. Students are strongly urged to complete Level I and Level II course work before beginning their Internship.
