Clinical Mental Health Counseling

A Clinical Counseling Master's Degree designed for working professionals

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master of Arts program is designed for individuals who are looking to enhance current employment or to change their career through an intensive graduate school experience. Courses are offered on the weekends in order to allow you to take courses while still working.

Graduates of the program typically achieve the credential of Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) through the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) in Colorado, or the licensing agency in the states in which they reside. Because our program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP), graduates are eligible to become Nationally Certified Counselors.

Career Options for Graduates

If your career goal is to work with individuals, couples and families, our counseling programs will prepare you to make a difference in people’s lives. The Clinical Mental Health Counseling master's degree prepares students to become professional counselors working in private practice or various community settings such as mental health care centers and residential treatment centers.

Students have the opportunity to take additional coursework toward becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). The courses for the LMFT credential are offered at the Denver center only.
