Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling

Format: Online

Program Description:

The M.A. in Pastoral Counseling is an online degree that offers training in pastoral counseling for clergy and lay pastoral counselors, drawing from the Christian psychology, mental health counseling, and clinical pastoral education fields. Pastoral counselors are often the first line of assistance and gatekeepers to professional services for people seeking help in faith-based and other settings. This program will arm you with counseling techniques, approaches to caring for others, and knowledge in areas such as substance abuse, marriage & family, and crisis counseling. Pastoral counseling is a specialty in counseling ministry, not a licensed mental health field.
