ULM Counseling 

Welcome to the Counseling Program at ULM!!

Exciting Things About Our Program    

100% online

Both our Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling Programs are completely online. There is no residency required. We use Moodle as our learning management system in our courses and Zoom as a way to conduct synchronous learning activities and construct pre-recorded lectures.

CACREP Accredited

Both our Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling Programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs. To read more about the benefits of accredited programs, click here.

Cost Effective

We charge $500 per credit hour, and since our program is online there is no out-of-state tuition. The Counseling Program at ULM was ranked 10th in the nation for most affordable master’s in counseling programs in 2019 by Best Colleges Online.

New Fall Cohort Model

We offer a fall cohort model that sequences coursework in a way that makes the content relevant and meaningful to the students. Foundational content is given the first year, followed by advanced clinical content and internship experiences the second year. Students may go full or part time.

New Electives and Focus Areas

The Counseling Program is partnering with other online programs at ULM to offer students a variety of electives that will tailor to their clinical interest. Students may take online course electives in the fields of psychology, gerontology, and marriage and family studies to expand their interdisciplinary knowledge and create a focus area in pediatrics, geriatrics, addictions, or marriage and family studies.

Small Class Sizes

Faculty are committed to providing students with a quality education. Many of our content courses are capped at 15 and our Practicum and Internship courses are capped at 6.

Summer Workshop

The Counseling Program provides a three-day summer workshop that is 100% online for students who complete their first year of classes. This workshop integrates all first-year coursework and students are exposed to advanced topics in clinical mental health and/or school counseling from experts in the field.
