You will notice that the licensure requirements refer to licensure qualifying degree programs.

What this means is that the program’s curriculum has been vetted by the Department and been found to meet the education requirements for licensure in New York State. Additionally, because Hofstra’s program is licensure qualifying, all client-contact hours accrued by students during internships are credited toward the 1,500 hours of client contact required for licensure.
