Lakeland University’s master of arts in counseling (M.A.C.) degree is a 48-semester-hour professional graduate training program. The M.A.C. program is dedicated to preparing students for one of three professional counseling areas: community counseling, higher education counseling or school counseling. The M.A.C. program is designed with the working professional in mind and offers opportunities for intellectual, moral and spiritual growth. Non-degree-seeking status is available.
Courses are available in 14-week semesters—in the classroom, BlendEd® and/or online. Instructors are practicing professionals—many holding terminal degrees—who blend experiential learning with in-class instruction. Practicums and internships afford ample time for observation and client contact. The M.A.C. program with a community counseling emphasis meets the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services requirements for a Wisconsin Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). The M.A.C. program with a school counseling emphasis is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and is approved for licensure and certification as a Wisconsin school counselor.

Lakeland University courses are held one night a week, allowing graduate students to choose their own pace without giving up other important aspects of their lives. Lakeland’s M.Ed. faculty is a mix of our own talented education professors and respected educators and administrators from surrounding districts.
Lakeland University offers on-site, classroom and online instruction, providing graduate students opportunities to blend learning options suited to their active lives. Teachers and school administrators will receive timely and useful instruction and tools that translate directly into better education for students.
To be admitted to the M.Ed. Program, a student must submit the following:
Admitted students may transfer up to nine graduate semester hours relevant to the M.Ed. program with approval from the M.Ed. program director. Transfer courses must have been taken within 10 years prior to application to the graduate program.
The Lakeland University master of business administration (M.B.A.) degree, designed with the working adult in mind, provides a broad-based professional education consisting of coursework that integrates research, case studies, technology and other learning processes. Objectives include an understanding of business and economic problems, and the development of managerial skills to address these problems in the context of an ethical and global workplace. In addition to the traditional M.B.A. degree, four M.B.A. degree concentrations are also available: a concentration in accounting, a concentration in finance, a concentration in project management and a concentration in healthcare management.
Students may transfer up to nine semester hours of graduate credit from other regionally accredited M.B.A. programs, provided the coursework is relevant to the Lakeland University program, and that a minimum grade of “C” was earned for formal coursework actually taken. These courses must be approved by the M.B.A. program director. Transfer courses must have been taken within 10 years prior to application to the graduate program. Transfer grades will not be included in calculating the applicant’s Lakeland GPA.
Applicants can register for one graduate course prior to being formally admitted to the program. Registration in subsequent courses is contingent upon acceptance to the program.
Course work of a “C”or better in the areas of economics, statistics, finance and accounting preferred. If no evidence of completed course work is provided, students have the option to complete two courses at the graduate level focusing on economics/statistics and finance/accounting to meet these requirements. Students also have the option to take undergraduate courses to fulfill these requirements.
