Counseling

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).
