If you desire a master’s degree in education counseling, but do not need to be licensed in mental health or school counseling, this is the program for you. The Human Services Counseling concentration is a 33-credit hour program of study that can be tailored to meet the needs of your current position while gaining knowledge and skills in counseling. This is a useful degree for those in higher education, pastoral counseling, wellness counseling, for those who work in healthcare, and others. While it is not a program that leads to licensure, additional courses can be taken to complete the degree in Mental Health Counseling if a decision to do so is made before the internship has begun and with permission of the faculty. All students accepted into our program must obtain a limited criminal history check within the first week of the semester in which they begin.
