Counselor Education - Certificate of Advanced Studies
For students already possessing the M.Ed. in Counseling, the Certificate of Advanced Studies (C.A.S.) allows concentration in an individually designed program. Students wishing to pursue the CAS must possess a master’s degree in counseling as it requires a minimum of 30 additional credit hours beyond the master’s. Students in the CAS program work with a faculty advisor to develop an individualized program of study in order to meet their specific educational and career needs. This is helpful for students who wish to focus on a specific area of practice, re-specialize (e.g., from school counseling to mental health counseling), or who wish to move into advanced levels of expertise in their area of interest.
