The Communication Sciences and Disorders program offers the academic course work and clinical practica experiences to meet both state licensure and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's requirements for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in speech-language pathology (ASHA CCC-SLP). Students pursuing State of Louisiana Ancillary Certification as a Speech Therapist should consult with a faculty advisor for specific requirements.
There are three concentrations in the counseling program:
All of these are nationally accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Program faculty members are nationally/internationally recognized as leaders in the counseling field. All graduates, regardless of concentration, receive the same degree, a Master of Education in Counselor Education. The academic coursework in all concentrations meets the academic requirements for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Louisiana as well as most other states.
