Welcome to the School of Community Health Sciences, Counseling and Counseling Psychology!
The School of Community Health Sciences, Counseling and Counseling Psychology is a unique and innovative integration of programs that offer students training in Health Education and Promotion, Nursing (RN to BSN), Counseling, and Counseling Psychology.
Our programs share these professional values:

Our programs are offered at OSU-Stillwater, OSU-Tulsa, and online. Students in our programs complete major practicum, internship, and/or supervised experiences as part of their training. We have partnerships with local and state agencies that provide students with unique training opportunities that they can custom-tailor to their own personal and professional goals and interests.
You may hear our School affectionately referred to as HCCP, or “hiccup.” HCCP stands for Health, Counseling, & Counseling Psychology. Follow the links to learn more about our programs.
