UHCL Bilingual Counselor Certificate

Bilingual Counseling Certification in Counseling Education

Become certified to use your bilingual skills to render counseling assistance to clients that speak different languages. Although the State Board for Educator Certification does not have a separate specialized certification to prepare bilingual candidates to work with English Language Learners, University of Houston-Clear Lake has developed a program tailored to train counselors who are bilingual to work with this population.

Help Multicultural Populations Overcome Barriers

Successful completion of this specialized certification will prepare students to work with English Language Learners. This program will follow the standard school counseling sequence plus an additional six hours. Individuals who complete this program will be eligible to apply for school counseling certification from the State Board for Educator Certification and receive a University of Houston-Clear Lake Bilingual Counselor certificate. The UHCL Bilingual Counselor certificate is not a state certificate.
