If you do not have K-12 teaching certification, you will take 6 credit hours of teacher preparation courses in order to be eligible to obtain the school counseling certification: ESC_PS 7000 and SPC_ED 7300. These courses are included within the 60 credit hours required to complete the program.
Note: X = full semester, A = 1st half of semester, B = 2nd half of semester
Students will take a school counseling certification (state licensing exam) — the Missouri Education Gateway Assessment — through the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) as their capstone. If students live outside of Missouri, they may take equivalent exams in their own state.
