Master of Education - Counseling & Human Development
The master of education in counseling and human development is CACREP-accredited and meets the academic licensure requirements for Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Each state licensing board sets the standards for professional counselors to follow in applying, qualifying, and maintaining licensure as a counselor. This includes additional supervised post-master professional experience, a passing score on a licensing exam, and other requirements. For the states in which the program is currently offered (Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee) the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) credentialing exam is accepted as the licensing exam. Links to licensure-related resources can be found in the School of Professional Counseling Resource Center.
