Plan Code


Department(s) Sponsoring Program



CIP Code


The minor is designed for those students who are interested in pursuing graduate work or employment in the area of counseling, psychology, counselor education, teaching, communications, and social work. The emphasis in many of the courses is to develop communication, listening, and counseling, and advisement skills in an environment that provides, in most cases, small classes and hands-on experience. Only a limited number of students can be admitted to the program each semester since we must work within existing faculty resources while maintaining our commitment to a small class size. Entrance is competitive and selective; students must be in good academic standing with a GPA of 2.5 or above and lower sophomores to apply and will be selected based on an application and a two-part screening process. The final decision will be made by the screening team and the coordinator of the program.
