Welcome to the Department of Educational Leadership and School Counseling (ELSC). We are pleased to welcome students both in-state and abroad who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees in Educational Administration or School Counseling. We also welcome students who are looking for courses for professional growth and/or wishing to take courses to meet educator licensure renewal requirements.

Our courses are offered in a variety of formats in an effort to accommodate the schedules of working individuals. Each program has a designated program coordinator who will be able to assist you with program information and/or course selection. Please call the ELSC office at the Gulf Coast or Hattiesburg campus to be directed to the appropriate coordinator. Also, please know I am here to assist you with your needs.
