Through an approach that focuses on the interconnectedness of all things,  students will learn how to apply holistic and systemic perspectives to working with individuals or groups in a variety of settings, including: 

  • clinics
  • hospitals
  • private industry
  • nonprofit
  • government
  • private practice

Through this online program with practicum training, our M.A. in Counseling program focuses on career opportunities in areas including marriage and family therapy, clinical counseling, and mental health. Guided by faculty with years of experience in the field, students can complete their degrees without relocating or leaving their current careers. In this low-residency program, students become part of a cohort, interacting online and meeting at the beginning of each semester at residential conferences.

Graduates from this three-year (60 semester credit) program  will have satisfied the practicum requirement to apply for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), or Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). As different states have different licensing requirements, we work with students from the very beginning to help them qualify for licensure in the state where they wish to practice.
