Counseling Degree Program
Individuals interested in becoming licensed clinical mental health counselors can join current students, admissions staff, and Program Chair Janee Both Gragg, to learn more about the School of Education’s master’s program from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 20 at the University Club.
The Clinical Mental Health Counseling master’s degree is a two-year program designed to prepare students to become licensed professionals. “There is a high demand in the mental health profession for licensed professional clinical counselors (LPCC’s),” said Amanda Wirtz, director of admissions for the School of Education. Students will complete 60 units and 350 hours of practicum before graduation. Graduates will be intern eligible for the LPCC and complete 3,000 hours within a wide variety of mental health fields.
“While this license is new to the state of California, LPCC’s are recognized nationally as one of the largest and most pertinent professional groups within the mental health discipline,” said Hilary Craw, admissions counselor.
All are invited to come and chat with current students, faculty, and admissions representatives about requirements, time commitments, and other aspects of this unique opportunity. The event is free. Hors d'oeuvres and desserts will be provided. For more information on this event or to register before June 18 please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
