The MS program in Mental Health Counseling offers a dynamic curriculum designed to prepare counselors to provide assessment
and psychotherapy services in a broad range of mental health settings. The MS program
offers two options for degree completion: students can earn a 60-credit MS in Mental
Health Counseling or a 48-credit in Mental Health Counseling. The program prepares
students to work in the mental health field or to pursue further graduate training
in counseling, psychotherapy, or related fields. PCOM students benefit from learning
in an osteopathic medical school environment in which there is a campus-wide sense
of serving and understanding the "whole person."
