Note: The EdD is not designed to meet any particular state’s licensing standards, so additional classes may need to be taken outside the program.  If you are interested in a state counseling license, it will be better to look at LU’s master’s degrees in Professional Counseling (online) or our Clinical Mental Health Counseling (residential), since they are expressly designed to meet the licensing requirements of a majority of states.
