Master of Science in Clinical Counseling
The Master of Science in Clinical Counseling program is designed to prepare practitioners who can function as professional counselors and who meet the State of Missouri requirements for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
The counselor must have an understanding of an individual's development through the life span and must have formal academic knowledge, applicable skills, and the clinical learning experiences necessary to help individuals, families, and groups solve problems they face in social contexts in which they live, learn, work, and play. This program will provide the skills and knowledge necessary for graduates to earn this license.
Graduates of this program will be employable in clinical counseling arenas such as correctional centers and psychiatric institutions, or in private practice. The program is 48 credit hours in length and may be completed in less than three calendar years through a full-time course of study. Students may also opt for part-time study. This program is offered on the Park Hills and Sedalia campuses.
Requirements included in the 48 credit hours are 6 credit hours of supervised practicum and 4 credit hours for completion of a thesis.
