Degree Program Overview

The Master of Education in School Counseling is designed specifically to prepare teachers for school counseling and may also meet academic requirements for licensure as a professional counselor (LPC). The program complies with existing standards for professional certification.

Once students complete the required courses, they are allowed to take the examination for school counseling. However, certification will not be issued by TEA until the applicant has completed two years of teaching experience.

Evening classes are offered at the main campus and The Woodlands Center. Cohorts may also be available.
