Master of Arts Degree Program

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 60 semester hours for the non-thesis option. Students who do not have teacher licensure must take  SPED 3150 (220:150) Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners in Classrooms to meet Board of Educational Examiners requirements for licensure. The thesis option requires an additional 6 hours of COUN 6299 (290:299) Research for either emphasis. A minimum of 20 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required.

All students completing this program must pass the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE).  Pass scores on the CPCE national examination are based each semester on test results for the national normative data.

Students are also required to write an essay and pass this component as well.  Non-thesis students must successfully complete the final paper and fulfill program-specific exit requirements. The thesis option requires a completed thesis and successful oral defense of the research, in addition to passing the CPCE and meeting program-specific exit requirements.
