Program Curriculum

Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) Program

Ongoing enhancements to Lakeland University’s Master of Arts in Counseling program continue to position graduates for exceptional career flexibility and success.

Lakeland’s MAC program recently earned three new endorsements that will benefit students and graduates for years to come:

  • Lakeland’s 60-credit MAC clinical mental health counseling program now includes pre-certification for substance abuse certification. When LU MAC students graduate within the 60-credit program, in addition to having the opportunity to apply for their professional counselor-in-training license, they can now also apply for substance abuse certification.
  • Lakeland is ahead of the game when it comes to meeting the 2018 state standard of 60 credit hours required for endorsement as a licensed professional counselor in training or LPC-IT. Lakeland’s 60-credit curriculum is a pre-approved training program by the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS).
  • Students in Lakeland’s MAC program are now eligible to take the National Counseling Exam (NCE) while they are in school. At other institutions, students must wait until after they graduate before taking this critical exam. But at LU, students can take a proctored exam twice a year while they’re completing their MAC degree.
