The undergraduate program in Psychology leads to the B.A. or B.S degree. The undergraduate major, which requires 34-40 semester hours, prepares graduates for employment in agencies and organizations as a technician or case manager. The curriculum, which includes several research courses, provides a foundation for advanced studies in psychology.
At the graduate level, we offer four different programs currently preparing students for a variety of careers in the helping professions. We offer a 48-51 semester hour Master of Education in School Counseling program that is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP.)
We offer a 66 semester hour Education Specialist in School Counseling program accredited by NCATE. Both of these school counseling programs lead towards licensure (AA and AAA) as a School Counselor. We offer two Master of Science degree programs, both of which are accredited by CACREP. One is the 60 semester hour Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling program, which prepares the student for working within mental and behavioral health settings, such as human service agencies, hospitals, private practice, as well as career and educational environments. The other is the 60 semester hour Master of Science in Marriage and Family Counseling program, which prepares the student for working within mental health centers, hospitals, churches and private practice.
