Counseling has been a part of the ISU College of Education since 1968. Currently, the Counseling Area of the Department of Communication Disorders and Counseling, School, and Educational Psychology offers an 18-hour Counseling Minor for undergraduate students, a 60-hour M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a 48-hour M.Ed. in School Counseling. Current professionals in either field can also pursue a non-degree licensure-only track. Both master’s programs are accredited through 2020 by the professional association Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The Ph.D. program in Counseling Psychology is currently closed but it remains accredited until 2017 by the American Psychological Association (APA).
Develop counseling professionals to promote well-being, educate, and serve others
The counseling area is a supportive and welcoming learning community committed to the preparation of competent entry and advanced level practitioners. Critical aspects of our programs are outreach and engagement within the broader community and experiential learning in a variety of contexts, which include agencies, schools, and other settings where counselors provide professional services.
