The University of Dallas now offers a master of psychology degree with clinical concentration that can be used to fulfill requirements to take the Texas Licensed Professional Counselor exam.
The 48 credit-hour graduate degree program provides a balanced mix of foundational psychology and counseling courses and requires 300 supervised hours of clinical practicum to complete.
The Texas LPC license certifies the holder to work legally as mental health professional. Once graduates have attained LPC certification, they commonly work as counselors, marriage and family therapists, and social workers. Many also choose to pursue doctorates in psychology or related fields.
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists will grow 29 percent by 2022, much faster than the average for other occupations. Much of that growth will result from an expected increase in the number of health insurance policies that cover mental health counseling services.
