Counseling Program
The counseling program at LLCU integrates a Christian emphasis with the basic research, theories and techniques of the counseling professions.

Students majoring in counseling have the opportunity to earn 100 hours of experience in a counseling-related setting, receiving directional supervision from a professional on site, through the internship program.

The counseling major focuses on an undergraduate preparation for the field of professional counseling. Because a graduate degree is expected in the field of counseling, the program has the preparation of students for graduate school as a primary goal. We also offer Masters degree in counseling for students pursuing a graduate level degree to further their education.

The goal is to align the internship site as closely as possibility with the student’s future goals.

Sometimes, an internship opens the door for future employment. A successful internship, at least, provides one more reference and experience resource for both graduate-level education and employment possibilities.

YOUR CAREER AND MINISTRY

With our degree, graduates have worked at women’s shelters, children homes, and in a variety of other helping jobs that do not require a state licensure. Others have moved directly into long-term ministry positions in the church. Many have used these positions as the financial base for continuing their education to the master’s or doctoral level.

The Painting Department has been the vanguard in the development of notable visual artists. While the department discourages inflexibility and bookish mentality, it stresses a systematic preparation and focus in the studio arts – drawing, sculpting, and especially, painting. The viewpoint is brought about by the reality that this department’s course program in one of the top-ranked in the country. The program both encourages and challenges students to comprehend past and present examples of painting and to incorporate that understanding into actual practice. Learners will display a detailed comprehension through composition, expression, and the use of a visual vocabulary, by learning anatomy, life drawing, life sketching, modeling, photography, freehand drawing, and creative design and the part they play in expressing sensibility and exuberance. Learners will be capable in the use of media such as oil, watercolor, acrylic, and pastel and will reveal through their works a sense of competence in an assortment of painting modes including the human figure, still life, portrait, and landscape. We believe that it is important for students to make a connection with art by encouraging them to make their efforts relevant to their lives and the world in which they live.

LLCU is a collaborative ensemble of students, community members and professionals that recognizes learning and growth as its primary goal.
