Master of Science in Counseling
About Southeastern's Counseling Program
Our Counseling Program is a 60-hour program accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) with concentrations in clinical mental health counseling; marriage, couple, and family counseling; and school counseling. Each of these concentrations lead to a Master of Science degree (M.S.) in Counseling. The academic coursework in all concentration meets the academic requirements for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Louisiana as well as most other states. School counseling graduates meet the academic requirements to become a certified school counselor in Louisiana after passing the school counseling Praxis exam.
Our program is a campus-based program, with most courses offered in a face-to-face format and several in a hybrid (partially online) format. A small number of courses are online. Content courses prior to field-based clinical experiences alternate between day and evening to accommodate working students. A student's last two semesters consist of a clinical internship at an approved site. The internship is very close to a full-time experience (approximately 30 hours per week), and students are only allowed to take one additional class along with internship for a maximum of six hours each semester of internship.
