Clinical Mental Health Counseling MA

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program is designed to prepare students to function as professional clinical mental health counselors in community agency and mental health settings, such as: (a) mental health centers; (b) family counseling centers, and (c) solo or group private practice.

MA Degree Requirements

Total MA Degree Credits: 60


Due to the sequential nature of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program, students must begin full-time study in the fall semester if they are to complete in two academic years.

Students are required to attend a minimum of eight weekly personal counseling sessions during the first semester of enrollment. These sessions may be arranged with the University’s Counseling & Testing Center or in the public sector by a licensed therapist. A letter verifying the completion of these eight sessions is required by the end of the first semester.

Continuation in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program is based upon a periodic review, by the department, of the student’s academic performance and personal qualifications as a counselor.

A student who wishes to seek licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the State of Indiana should consult with the Coordinator of the MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program.
