Program Mission
Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology

The mission of the Master of Science Program in Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology is to prepare highly skilled, compassionate counselors to provide evidence-based, active, focused, culturally sensitive and behavioral health services.

Concurrently, the program prepares graduates with the attitudes, knowledge and skills to pursue doctoral training in psychology, counseling or a related field.

Grounded in the cognitive-behavioral tradition, this program trains practitioner-scholars to offer assessment, therapeutic interventions, consultation, program evaluation, social justice advocacy and follow-up services. Incorporating knowledge of the biopsychosocial model, the program provides a foundation for ethical practice that facilitates the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities.

The program prepares master’s level graduates for credentialing as a licensed professional counselor in states where a 48-credit degree of this type is accepted.
