Program description

Our 48-credit curriculum includes a range of required courses on relevant topics identified in the CACREP core competencies. It also includes 700 hours of supervised practicum/internship experience. Upon graduation, you will be prepared to:

  • Successfully complete Indiana’s CORE Assessments for Educators.
  • Apply Indiana’s Rules for Educator Preparation and Accountability (REPA) standards.

What will I do as a school counselor?

Licensed school counselors work with children and teens in public and private K-12 school settings. They help elementary and secondary students build required skills for academic and social success.

School counselors meet with students individually for one-on-one sessions. They lead group sessions for students experiencing similar challenges or barriers to success. They also create and deliver special programs or curriculum about topics that can impact all youth, like abuse, divorce, bullying, drugs and alcohol, suicide, and family issues.


For students who want to complete the clinical mental health counseling track in addition to the school counseling track, an additional 15 hours of coursework is required.
