Lindenwood University - Belleville



Division of Education & Counseling


There are several key reasons to be a part of the Education Division at LU-Belleville. First, Lindenwood University degrees in education are designed to meet the needs of aspiring and practicing educators. Next, our degree programs form a solid foundation, build upon existing skills, and offer new approaches for analyzing contemporary problems and acquiring new perspectives, techniques, and knowledge.

In addition, these approaches include a one-to-one relationship with an experienced and highly trained educator and a continuing problem-solving relationship with teaching peers. Finally, students will appreciate courses which provide strong foundations for professional growth and the opportunity to prescribe an individualized program of studies.

Counseling is a rewarding field that enables professionals to bring empathy and creativity to the helping relationship. Counselors help individuals recognize and use their strengths as they navigate through environmental and social barriers to emotional well-being.  Counselors guide individuals as they explore challenges, conflicts, transitions, career decisions, illness and disability in an effort to gain insights and find new solutions.

Our Master of Arts in Counseling programs are designed to prepare master’s level counseling practitioners. The professional counseling and school counseling programs provide students with a broad base of psychological knowledge and theory integrated with extensive training and practice in the use of counseling skills. Graduates of professional and school counseling programs are qualified to work in a variety of school and/or mental health settings with individuals, groups, and families
