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

Do you want to learn how to put your compassion to work, facilitating others’ healing journeys?

To do this effectively, we offer a training program that aligns with the national training standards for the counseling profession.

Through this online M.A. Counseling program, students are prepared to become clinical mental health counselors. Our program is guided by faculty with experience in the field, and students can complete their degrees without relocating. While in the program, students meet two times a year at the beginning of each semester at residential conferences. For the rest of the program, students become part of a cohort, interact online, and establish lifetime professional relationships.

Graduates from this three-year (60 semester credit) program will have satisfied course requirements to apply for licensure as a 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.
