The CMHC program is highly valued by candidates seeking research positions, those planning to pursue a doctoral degree, those interested in teaching, those seeking human service counseling positions in a variety of settings and more!

Students will receive a comprehensive background in counseling theories, empirical research findings, counseling skills, and treatment approaches necessary for the effective delivery of services in a variety of mental health settings. The program places a particular emphasis upon developing strong skills in differential diagnosis, case conceptualization, ethical practice, personal growth, mulitcultural sensitivity, and evidence-based practices.

The Masters of Clinical Mental Health Counseling program consists of 60 credit hours of graduate work. This counseling masters program prepares students to sit for the National Counselor Exam (NCE) in order to apply for Licensure for Professional Counseling (LAC and LPC) as well as offers students a unique opportunity to take the NCE before graduation! Students are also required to complete at least 600 hours of supervised practice in a mental health setting, which provides a hands-on approach for honing skills to be effective, ethical counselors.
