To meet the licensure requirements for Kentucky and Florida, students must take an additional 12 hours of counseling courses beyond the degree plan. Students who pursue licensure in Florida must take CO622 Theories of Personality Development Across the Life Span, CO625 Recognizing and Treating Addictive Disorders, and CO611 Dynamics of Human Sexuality. CO705 and CO706 each require minimum of 300 hours. Students who pursue LPC licensure in Florida need 500 hours per practicum to meet Florida LPC requirements (1000 hours total). More than the minimum of 63 credit hours required to complete this degree may be needed to fulfill the academic requirements of some states and for certification with the National Board of Certified Counselors. Students will need to check with the states of their choice. New students are expected to enroll in the August course CO601 Counseling Theories and Techniques. Exceptions need to be cleared with the department of counseling and pastoral care. Consult the online course schedule for CO601 dates and times. For additional program requirements (e.g., course sequencing), students should consult with an academic advisor.
