About this course
The program includes a core of courses based upon the content areas recommended by the National Board for Certified Counselors and required in the accreditation standards of the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs.
Students must demonstrate competency in three major areas in order to complete the degree and become eligible for endorsement or recommendation as a counselor: effective personal functioning, professional commitment, and skilled practice. The clinical mental health counseling program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) as a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. Students wishing to pursue registration or licensure as professional counselors should understand that additional years of supervised experience (beyond the degree) are required by the state in which licensure is sought.
