Degree Checksheet (PDF)


The Counselor option prepares a student to work as a counselor in a variety of public and private work settings.  Flexibility in program planning permits the graduate student to explore and develop new skills as well as increase knowledge in such areas as interviewing, counseling, family services, career development, evaluation, crisis intervention, and substance abuse.

All Counseling students are required to take the comprehensive examination during the last semester (internship) of their program. The examination may be written oral, or both. Students must pass the examination in order to complete the degree requirements for the Counselor Option.

Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)

The Counselor option is a 60-hour program designed to prepare the counseling student to become a Licensed Professional Counselor.  The curriculum in the program prepares the counseling student to apply to the Oklahoma State Board of Health to go under supervision for licensure upon graduation.  Although East Central University counseling coursework has met LPC licensure requirements in the past, the acceptance of coursework as meeting licensure requirements is the decision of the Oklahoma State Board of Health.
