The MC in counseling program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs and adheres closely to the 2016 CACREP Standards. The mission of the master's degree program is to prepare students to become professional clinical mental health counselors, culturally competent to work with diverse clientele in a variety of mental health settings including colleges and universities, organizational settings, and community behavioral health agencies. Clinical mental health counselors seek to prevent or treat psychological problems and to promote the health of individuals, families, groups and organizations in a diverse society. The faculty has endorsed the American Counseling Association's Code of Ethics and Multicultural Counseling Competencies.
The program also instills in students the importance of research in advancing the counseling profession. One manifestation of the crucial link between practice and research is the three complementary functions of the program's state-of-the-art Counselor Training Center: services delivery, clinical training and research.
