About

The Department of Educational Psychology has multiple areas of graduate study. These include Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education; School Psychology; Human Development, Culture and Learning Science; and Quantitative Methods. 

Overview

The Counselor Education master’s degree (M.Ed.) program is designed to effectively and efficiently meet the increasing demand for counselors in the educational setting. Our primary focus is the rigorous study of education, psychology and counseling, and preparing students to work in schools and universities. Graduates of our program will be prepared to:

  • Pursue employment as academic advisers, career counselors and student affair officials in colleges and universities
  • Pursue doctoral studies in counseling psychology or other related fields
  • Become certified in the State of Texas as a School Counselor

The 48-hour degree program is designed to be completed in two years. Many of our courses are offered in the daytime or are offered every other year. We encourage students to enroll as a full-time student to maximize their ability to immerse themselves in the academic and experiential learning experiences available while training.

An exciting part of our program is the applied work during practicum placements. We have developed relationships with local school districts and universities to ensure that our students have optimal opportunities to train for future work in academic settings.
