College of Applied Human Sciences: School of Counseling and Well-being
The Master of Arts in Counseling program prepares counseling practitioners in two tracks of study, clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. This is a full time on-campus program.
Professional counseling is the application of mental heath, psychological or human development principles, through cognitive, affective, behavioral or systemic intervention strategies that address wellness, personal growth or career development, as well as pathology. The mission of the program is to focus on the preparation of competent and ethical entry-level clinical mental health and school counselors to work in a variety of settings within the state, region and country.
Although the Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling specializations are on-campus programs, some courses may be delivered online (either synchronously or asynchronously). Students must have the aptitude to utilize digital learning platforms such as eCampus and Zoom, and the digital information tracking platform known as Tevera.
