Counseling & Guidance (MACG)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Education

The Counseling and Guidance MA program is designed to prepare counselors for counseling and human service positions in educational institutions and other agencies. The program provides students with basic preparation in counseling and psychology with various elective concentrations offered to prepare students for particular institutional settings, e.g., educational, mental health, and community service agencies.

Failure to maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0, or receipt of any grade lower than “C”, or the receipt of more than 3 semester hours of “C” in any graduate course work, will result in the student being dropped from the Counseling and Guidance program.

Post-MACG Practicum and Internship Policy

Graduates of the Master of Arts Counseling and Guidance (MACG) program at Louisiana Tech University who wish to pursue licensure or Louisiana Board of Education Teacher (Counselor) Certification may enroll in Practicum and Internship courses under the following conditions and only with the prior written approval of the MACG program coordinator. Approval will be based on the following:

  • The applicant is eligible for Practicum or Internship under the current program requirements, (i.e., the 48-hour school counseling curriculum or 60-hour mental health counseling curriculum); and
  • There is availability of Practicum or Internship space (current program students have priority).

Under no circumstances is any post-MACG student guaranteed enrollment in practicum or internship for consecutive quarters.

Students in the Human Services concentration are not eligible for licensure and do not participate in practicum or internship.
