About the Counseling Program

The CACREP accredited LRU Master of Arts degree in clinical mental health counseling is designed to prepare individuals for positions as professional counselors in agencies within the community. The counseling program places primary emphasis on the development of strong clinical skills. Upon receiving the Master of Arts degree in counseling, students will meet course work requirements for eligibility to take the examination to become a National Board Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

About the Human Services Program:

The Master of Arts in Human Services program is structured to prepare students for professional practice through the creative application of knowledge, theory, and skills. The curriculum provides opportunities for a broad conceptual mastery of human services through an understanding of subject matter, bibliographic resources, theory, practice, and scholarly research. The intent of the curriculum is to develop within students the capacity to interpret, analyze, synthesize, and communicate knowledge, and to develop those skills needed to effectively practice and advance the human services profession. The MA in Human Services will prepare students to sit for the Human Services – Board Certified Practitioner (HS-BCP) credentialing examination.
