About

The Counseling Department is located in the College of Education and Professional Development, co-located on the Huntington and South Charleston campuses of Marshall University. 

Overview

Mission Statement

  • The mission of the Marshall University Counseling Program is to prepare aspiring Counselors to serve their communities and schools as ethical, competent, and culturally sensitive practitioners. 
  • Program graduates in the Clinical Mental Health Emphasis are eligible to apply for the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) credential through the West Virginia Board of Examiners in Counseling when they complete post-graduate supervision and pass the National Counselor Exam (NCE) or the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Exam (NCMHCE).
  • Program graduates in the School Counseling Emphasis are eligible to apply for both the LPC-WV license through the West Virginia Board of Examiners in Counseling—when they complete post-graduate supervision and pass the National Counselor Exam, and the Pre-K—Adult School Counseling Certification through the West Virginia Department of Education upon graduation and by passing the PRAXIS II Professional School Counselor Examination.
  • In addition to these two major areas of emphasis, we offer a five-course Graduate Certificate Program in Violence, Loss and Trauma Counseling, currently the state’s only graduate level initiative providing a sequential, specialized professional development opportunity for mental health professionals focusing on traumatology and trauma-informed mental health counseling.
