Graduate Degree Programs

The department offers several graduate degree programs. 

These include:
  • Professional Counselor (School Counseling and Licensed Professional Counselor)
  • Counseling Psychology (Licensed Professional Counselor)
  • Clinical Mental Health Counseling

The Professional Counselor Program offers a program of study leading to the Master of Education degree with a major in Counseling.  The degree is primarily designed to enable graduates to pursue certification as a school counselor. The program also enables graduates to be eligible for the Professional Counselor License (LPC).  Before school counseling certification can be granted, students must have accrued at least two years of teaching experience in public schools, grades K-12.

The Master of Science in Counseling Psychology provides programs of study leading to credentialing in Counseling Psychology.  Graduates are eligible for the Professional Counselor License (LPC) credential. 

Our newest program is the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program.  For more information please contact Dr. Julie Merriman, Director of Counseling Programs at merriman@tarleton.edu.
