Since its inception in 1962, the Department of Professional Counseling program has educated counselors for school, community, and higher education settings. In the mid-1970s, three distinct emphases were developed, each sharing a common core of courses in addition to specialized courses.
The Master of Science in Education-Counseling degree is designed to be the strong foundation upon which graduates enter a lifetime career in the helping professions. This program prepares counselors to respond to the multitude of changes in society, client needs, and to the ever-expanding counseling profession. In addition to knowledge and experience in the following common, core areas, graduates also have specialized knowledge and skills as identified in the objectives of the Clinical Mental Health, School, and Student Affairs and College Counseling majors.
To continue improving and updating the Curriculum and Program, the faculty engage in continuous assessment of the program. To illustrate the assessment and data that the faculty revise please explore our program outcome data.
