Major in Counseling

The Counseling major is offered with two emphasis areas; Clinical Mental health Counseling and School Counseling. Program requirements and detailed information on the major, including admission policies and procedures, should be obtained from the School of Applied Human Sciences. Graduate information and application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission (also www.uni.edu/csbs/sahs/counseling).

The Graduate Record Examination (General Test) is not required for admission to the program.

Only graduate courses (course numbers 5000 or above) will apply to a graduate degree, even if the undergraduate course number (4999 or less) is listed.  No exceptions will be made. 

This major is available on the thesis and non-thesis options. The Clinical Mental Health emphasis requires a minimum of 60 semester hours for the non-thesis option; the School Counseling emphasis requires a minimum of 51 semester hours for the non-thesis option.
