Counselor Education
Research Practicum Sequence

The counselor education program offers students the opportunity to participate in the Counseling Research Practicum sequence. This unique opportunity is offered by relatively few counseling programs. Students who take this sequence develop applied research expertise consistent with their responsibilities as licensed professional counselors, licensed professional clinical counselors, higher education counselors, school counselors, and professionals in other counseling-related fields. Courses in this sequence provide students interested in participating in a research project the opportunity to document that participation on their transcript. Class requirements are tailored to support your research participation with a research mentor and research team.
