Master of Science in School Counseling (Online)

Serve students with an integrated and faith-based approach to counseling services.

Our School Counseling program prepares graduates to implement comprehensive school counseling services that facilitate wellbeing in students and families. Instructors combine practical and theoretical teaching with hands-on experience to set the stage for your career in school counseling. Small class sizes and one-on-one interactions allow you to hone your skills in integrating the Christian faith as the context for serving your community.

Students can earn a master in school 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 and certification exams such as the National Counselor Exam (NCE) and Missouri Content Assessment exam (MOCA). Evangel counseling students qualify to take these exams prior to graduation. Required courses are consistent with most education requirements for state licensure or certification. To determine whether the program meets your state requirements, contact Dr. Christine Arnzen at Or peruse the state certification requirements at (add the link that is on the current page).
