Welcome to the Department of Counseling

July 15th, program application deadline

Passionate about helping others? Our graduate-level program prepares professional counselors who:

  • Achieve sound counseling skills through hands-on learning.
  • Acquire a comprehensive and theoretical knowledge base.
  • Develop a strong professional counselor identity.

We develop moral and ethical thinkers, scholars and leaders who demonstrate civility and integrity while contributing meaningfully to the profession. And our faculty of practicing licensed professional counselors share their know-how to develop you as a best-practice counselor.

Our Master of Science in clinical mental health counseling satisfies academic requirements to become an LPC in Texas. Students with a teaching certificate and two years' experience may satisfy requirements for the TExES certification to become a professional school counselor.

We offer a minor in counseling for undergraduate students, particularly those in health sciences and human services or those planning to pursue graduate degrees. Classes are taught at three locations, evenings and weekends, to accommodate your busy schedule.

Show us your passion!
