Eastern Illinois University’s graduate program in Counseling offers two options: the MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and the MS in School Counseling

Practical Experience
Practicum and Internships placements begin in the second semester of coursework. These practical experiences are intended to combine course work with field experience conducted in a setting as similar as possible to that in which you will be seeking employment. The nature of this experience should be very much like that of a regular counseling position, but with intensive supervision both on-site and on-campus. Practicum and Internship sites and supervisors play a pivotal role in helping you begin the transition into your professional identity.

Upon graduation you will be prepared to become a licensed professional counselor (LPC) by taking the National Counseling Examination (NCE) or a certified school counselor by obtaining a Professional Educator license (PEL).

As a CACREP accredited program, students take the NCE exam while in their final year of study, allowing them to graduate from EIU as Licensed professional counselors.

First Choice Status
EIU recognizes the M.S. in Counseling as a program that meets the highest standards of scholarly excellence as documented through sustained achievement.

Research is an important aspect of the program, with an aim for students to display advanced scholarship through their research. Each student in the Counseling program takes a Research Methods course designed to introduce you to qualitative and quantitative methods of research.
