Program Description:

The Counseling Psychology program is intended to provide a general and comprehensive preparation for students interested in counseling persons experiencing distress, rather than severe psychological disturbances. Students receive instruction in group processes, human development, and guidance counseling, in addition to instruction in assessment and counseling techniques. Students who complete their degrees and meet state certification or licensing requirements may be employed in settings similar to those employing clinical psychology graduates and other mental health professionals. This degree plan fulfills the educational requirements necessary to qualify for the Licensed Professional Counselor license from the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. Students may choose a specialization in Marital and Family Counseling. These students are instructed in systems theory and in assessment and counseling techniques that pertain to marriage, divorce and family problems, including child sexual abuse and family violence.
