Clinical Mental Health Counseling Specialization

This area is designed for students seeking professional counseling positions in agencies that assist clients to resolve psychological disorders and/or developmental issues through crisis intervention, remediation, and/or primary prevention interventions. The counselors-in-training are exposed to a variety of educational experiences through practicum, internships, and specialized studies that will insure students have an appreciation for the diversity of clientele, services, and programs provided in these community agencies.
