MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
The first two semesters of your 60-credit program will be the same as the basic Clinical Mental Health Counseling track.
During the next three semesters, you will complete specific coursework in substance abuse/addictions counseling. Students in this concentration must also complete an internship in a substance abuse or addictions-focused setting and participate in a supervision group oriented to substance abuse and addictions counseling. The wide variety of placements for students may include: high school student assistance programs, residential placements, in-patient addictions units, community mental health centers, and prisons.
Graduates will meet the academic requirements for licensure as clinical mental health counselors in most states, as well as the academic requirements for certification and licensure as alcohol and drug counselors in most states which have such certification or licensure.
