Curriculum for a Master's in Mental Health Counseling
The State of Indiana Licensing Board has set guidelines for coursework to be completed by graduates of master’s programs in counseling-related fields. This program consists of 60 credit hours of courses (49 hours of didactic, and 11 hours of clinical courses). The 11 hours of clinical courses will include both 100 supervised hours of clinical practicum and 900 supervised hours of internship, as dictated by the State of Indiana for licensure. The program involves both classroom instruction and experiential learning consistent with CACREP educational guidelines for accredited counseling programs. All coursework is required of all students, as the program is designed to match licensure guidelines.
Hybrid Program Design: This program has been designed as a multi-campus, collaborative hybrid degree program. This means approximately half of the degree credits will be offered in an online format, and half will be offered in face-to-face (F2F) courses.
