Major

Lakeland University's master of arts in counseling (MAC) degree is a 48-60 semester-hour professional graduate training program. The MAC program is dedicated to preparing students for one of three professional counseling areas: community counseling, higher education counseling or school counseling. The MAC program is designed with the working professional in mind and offers opportunities for intellectual, moral and spiritual growth. Non-degree-seeking status is available.

Courses are available in 14-week semesters — in the classroom, BlendEd® and/or online. Instructors are practicing professionals — many holding terminal degrees - who blend experiential learning with in-class instruction. Practicums and internships afford ample time for observation and client contact. The MAC program with a community counseling emphasis meets the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services requirements for a Wisconsin Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). The MAC program with a school counseling emphasis is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and is approved for licensure and certification as a Wisconsin school counselor.
