Counselor Professional Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Education

The certification program in counseling prepares professional counselors to function in a public school setting. Formal admission to the counseling area in the department is required. Students must complete a required sequence of counseling courses and nine semester hours of electives, approved by an advisor for this certificate. Three years of acceptable teaching experience is a prerequisite for this certificate. Note: Many school districts prefer completion of a M.Ed. degree in Counseling inclusive of the certificate requirements.

If students and advisors plan carefully and if the students complete the appropriate additional course work, graduates of the program may meet the academic (master’s degree) requirements necessary for State Board for Educator Certification’s certification as school counselors, and may be eligible to sit for the examination to obtain either certification as a Psychological Associate or licensure as a Professional Counselor.

For further information, consult the Department of Educational Psychology, 491 Farish Hall, (713) 743-9830.
