Program Description:

Mental health counselors work alongside psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers to provide counseling services to people from all walks of life.

Our 60-credit MS program lays the groundwork for aspiring mental health counselors to begin work in a highly competitive and rewarding field in service of patients and clients in need of help.

Our curriculum combines an intensive clinical internship and a variety of courses to best prepare you for licensure and fulfilling careers working with diverse populations.
