About

We believe you have made a wise choice to pursue your graduate education with us. We take pride in our graduates and the impact they have on the counseling profession throughout the state of Louisiana and beyond. We offer a master degree in Counseling and Guidance at Louisiana Tech University. 

Overview

The foundations of the profession are deeply rooted in social justice, wellness, and unconditional positive regard. The training of new professionals is a journey that requires acquisition of academic knowledge, demonstration of counseling skills, and personal growth. Indeed, it is unusual for a student to complete a counseling program without some level of personal introspection and reflection.

Our Counseling Guidance program from Louisiana Tech University strives to provide a supportive and encouraging learning environment with the expectation that faculty and students will be aware of and respect cultural, individual, and role differences. The next two to three years of your life will be filled with many challenges. Congratulations on your decision to enter the highly respected and noble profession of counseling.

Programme Structure

  • The Counseling and Guidance program offers both School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling career options for those interested in becoming a professional counselor. The curriculum in School Counseling has been approved by the Louisiana Board of Education for certification. The curriculum in Clinical Mental Health Counseling prepares candidates for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
  • The Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling concentrations of the Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Guidance are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Additionally, both programs have been approved by the Louisiana Department of Education and the Louisiana Board of Regents. The School Counseling concentration also is accredited by NCATE.
