Counseling – Modifications to Proposal on 30-Hour M.A. degree in "Counseling"
The following motion was recommended to the Dean on March 18, 2009 by the full EPC and formally approved by the Dean on April 3, 2009. Please keep this notice with your records about LSOE policies, programs and procedures.
It is moved: To be awarded the 30-hour M.A. Counseling Theory degree, a student would have to complete 30 semester hours with PY 440: Principles and Techniques of Counseling and PY 528: Multicultural Issues as the 2 required courses. The person would take the rest of the courses making up the 30-hour degree in areas relevant to the Counseling Theory degree, and pass M.A. comprehensive exam for the Counseling Theory degree. Courses may be taken at BC outside the department (e.g., Nursing, Social Work), but these courses should be approved by the student's advisor. Students who are "counseled out" of the M.A. Mental Health or School Counseling programs will be asked to withdraw from their Internship course.
