ULM offers two new online degrees
The University of Louisiana at Monroe has expanded its online offerings yet again to include two new degrees from the department of Education and Human Development.
ULM Gold—Gateway to OnLine Degrees—now offers both the M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction.
The Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling consists of three specific areas of concentration ranging from 48-60 hours of credit requirements.
Students entering the program will be required to complete a core curriculum and then may choose one of three areas of concentration:
- Clinical Mental Health Counseling, which focuses on preparation for licensure as counselors working in community settings and private practice
- School Counseling, which focuses on preparing counselors for working in elementary, middle, and high schools to provide academic, career, college access, and personal/social competencies to K-12 students. Students completing this program are also LPC license eligible
- Gerocounseling, which focuses on counseling elders and their families.
The Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction is designed for persons who are interested in, and show promise of becoming scholars and leaders in the domains of curriculum, teaching, teacher education, and/or educational policy at the K-12 or college level, or in local, state, regional, or national agencies.
This 60 credit-hour degree features a solid, rigorous program of academic coursework and research experiences, which prepare future scholars and practitioners to understand and address P-12 school problems and needs from a holistic perspective. Applicants to this program can either enter post-bachelor's degree or post-master's degree.
