The counselor education post-master's program is planned for individuals to take courses for professional development or licensure. There is not a set curriculum; students design their own post-master's curriculum.
This non-degree counselor education post-master's program is designed to provide the opportunity for students to complete courses after their master's degree to total 60 credits, as required to become an LPC in Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania Licensure Act 136 of 1998). Two or more additional years of supervised work experience after graduation is also required to complete the LPC. Students should contact their licensure board to verify their eligibility and requirements for licensure.

The curriculum for this program varies by student. Courses taken will assist students in fulfilling the requirements necessary to maintain or become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
The department will evaluate student transcripts and advise which courses are recommended.
