Student Affairs in Higher Education with College Counseling is a newly added M.A. program specialization designed for individuals interested in preparing for positions as mental health counselors at colleges and universities. These mental health counseling positions almost always require state licensure as a professional counselor, which this degree makes possible. Additionally, other counseling-focused areas of student affairs such as career counseling, health promotion services, and disability services can benefit from obtaining this degree. Student Affairs in Higher Education with College Counseling is a 60 credit hour, three-year, specialty program that combines curriculum and practicum/internship experiences from the Student Affairs in Higher Education program and the Community Counseling program. Graduates are eligible for the National Certified Counselor credential (NCC) and are license eligible in Pennsylvania as a professional counselor (LPC).
