About the Counselor Education Master’s Program

The college offers both a Master’s Degree (M.Ed.) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Counselor Education. The master’s and doctoral programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

There are two master’s level concentrations in counselor education: clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. The master’s program with a concentration in clinical mental health counseling requires 60 credit hours. The master’s program with a concentration in school counseling requires 48 credit hours. Applicants for the school counseling program must meet the following TEA requirements: (1) have a valid Texas Teaching certificate; (2) have a minimum of two years classroom teaching experience as shown by submission of the District Service Record; and (3) have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Master’s level students may transfer a maximum of 6 hours of graduate coursework from a CACREP program. Transfer hours should be no more than six years old and be equivalent to courses offered at Texas Tech University. No transfer hours will be allowed for practica (EPCE 5360 ), internship (EPCE 5094 ), techniques (EPCE 5357 ), group (EPCE 5354 ), dysfunctional behavior (EPCE 5366 ), or ethics (EPCE 5370 ). Please note: The Counselor Education master’s program admits only in the fall semester because the program coursework is offered in a scheduled rotation. Students are expected to meet rotation requirements and enroll in coursework as required each semester; failure to do so will add up to a year of additional time required to complete the program.

Additional information about counselor education is available online at www.educ.ttu.edu/epce and in the department office. All applicants must complete the program application through the TTU Graduate School application portal. Additional information about the application process may be found on the Graduate School website at http://www.depts.ttu.edu/gradschool/admissions/howtoapply.php.
