MASTER OF SCIENCE IN COUNSELING
Students complete 42 hours of core classes and 18 hours of specialization courses. NSU's Master of Science in Counseling program prepares students for a counseling career or for further advanced study. The program familiarizes students with the use of scientific thought and principles as applied to the practice of professional counseling.
This rigorous and unique program includes a 600 clock hour supervised internship experience. This program meets or exceeds the educational requirements for becoming either a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC), or a Certified School Counselor (K-12) in Oklahoma as well as most other states.
NSU's Master of Science in Counseling is accredited by the Council of Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) as of July 2015.
CACREP is an independent agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation to accredit master's programs in Counselor Education and doctoral programs in Counselor Education and Supervision.
Achieving CACREP accreditation demonstrates NSU's commitment to the enhancement of the program's reputation, the desire to attract highly qualified students seeking enrollment in CACREP programs, increasing faculty productivity in areas such as research, publication and service, and demonstrates a commitment to meeting the highest academic standards.
