COUNSELOR EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The Counseling Programs at Arkansas State University offer a CACREP accredited master's degree in School Counseling (not accepting applications at this time); a CORE accredited master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling; and a specialist’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling consistent with CACREP standards and Arkansas state licensure requirements for licensed professional counselors.
The primary mission of the Psychology Programs is to provide a sound understanding of the basic principles of psychological science. This foundation will serve students who choose to earn advanced degrees in psychology or related fields, as well as those who enter people oriented occupations following graduation.
The Ed.S. Degree in Psychology & Counseling with an emphasis on School Psychology prepares students for careers as School Psychologists. These professionals work with parents, teachers, students, educators, and others to best meet the educational and mental health needs of children.
