Counseling Psychology

Master of Science in Counseling Psychology

The Master of Science (M.S.) in counseling psychology is a 60-semester-credit-hour program designed for students who would like to work for profit or nonprofit mental health agencies, mental health and mental retardation centers or hospitals, or in rehabilitation settings, academia or private counseling settings. Some of our students go on to doctoral programs.

Periodic modifications are made in the counseling program, depending on licensing board rules and practicum site demands and availability. The two state licensing boards are the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists and the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors.

To be considered for admission, individuals must submit a Graduate Application for Admission Form and supporting materials to the College of Graduate Studies and Research. Admission requirements are listed below.
