The Dual Degree Counselor Education Program allows students to earn a Master’s degree (MAED) in School Counseling and a Master’s degree (MA) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Students must be eligible to be admitted to both programs simultaneously, must meet the degree requirements for both CACREP accredited specialties, and must work on the degree requirements concurrently. This includes a minimum of a 600 clock hour internship for each specialty, and any differences in the core curriculum. When all course work is completed the degrees will be awarded concurrently. Approximately 72 – 75 credit hours are required to complete both degrees, and a student may not add on the other degree once a degree has been awarded.
