Licensure and Graduate Certificate Programs

The Graduate Studies in Counseling within the Behavioral Sciences department offers two non-degree licensure programs in school counseling and three different graduate certificates in counseling.

The non-degree licensure programs in school counseling are designed for individuals who are seeking licensure in school counseling who already hold a master's degree in education (Licensure in School Counseling Program B) or in counseling (Licensure in School Counseling Program C).

The three graduate certificates are designed to demonstrate the student has completed additional specialized coursework beyond their master's degree. The Graduate Certificate in Counseling for Church Leaders can be completed while the student is enrolled in another master's degree program, or after completing a master's degree. The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Counseling is completed after a master's degree in counseling (or a related field) is already conferred for the purpose of expanding knowledge in counseling specialty areas. The Graduate Certificate in Professional Counseling is completed after a master's degree in counseling (or a related field) has already been conferred for the purpose of completing coursework requirements for state licensure as a professional counselor.
