Our Clinical Mental Health Counseling program focuses on integrating a faith base approach to building an ethical counseling practice that addresses a client’s holistic health. Students will receive practical and theoretical training that prepares them to offer mental health services in various settings including, community mental health, medical facilities, substance abuse programs, correctional facilities, private practice, and more.
Students can earn a masters in clinical mental health counseling in 9* semesters. The program begins with a 7-week summer session which includes a 3 day on campus, mandatory residency in mid-June. Courses extend over 15 weeks during the fall and spring semesters and 7 weeks for summer sessions. In addition to asynchronous weekly assignments, students will engage in synchronous learning (live) on a weekly basis.
Students will gain knowledge to qualify for licensing exams such as the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination (NCMHCE) or National Counselor Exam (NCE). Evangel counseling students qualify to take these exams prior to graduation. Required courses are consistent with most education requirements for state licensure or certification.
