Master of Science in Clinical Counseling

The Master of Science in Clinical Counseling program is a professional development program designed to prepare graduates with knowledge and skills necessary to apply for licensure in Missouri as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

Our aim is to graduate competent, socially conscious, reflective, evidence-based counselors who understand an individual's development through the life span and are able to meet the needs of a diverse society. In order to achieve that aim, counseling graduates are exposed to formal academic knowledge, applicable skills, and the clinical learning experiences.

Graduates of this program will be employable in clinical counseling arenas such as correctional centers, mental health centers, and psychiatric institutions, or be prepared to work in private practice. The program is 60 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 in Columbia, Maryland Heights, Park Hills and Sedalia. Courses are typically taught in a traditional setting, one to two evenings per week.

We welcome your interest in the program. If you have general questions about the program, please email or call the admissions office at 660-248-6651. If you have specific questions about the content or process of the program, please contact the advisor at the program site where you are interested in attending.
