Introduction

The Master of Science (M.S.) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, a 60 semester hour program, prepares professional counselors to work in community agencies, educational settings, as well as private practice. Students are eligible to take the National Counselor Examination (NCE) leading to certification as a National Certified Counselors (NCC). The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program also prepares students to seek licensure as a Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Nevada.

Classes meet once a week and are offered in the late afternoon and evenings to accommodate students' work and internship schedules. While classes are taught primarily in-person and on-campus, some classes may be offered fully online or through a hybrid format.

The mission of the program in Counselor Education is to provide all master’s level students with the latest methods, theories, and techniques of the discipline and to provide a field experience that will allow for a theory-to- practice developmental training approach. Indeed, we seek to enhance the requisite clinical skills needed to function as a professional counselor. In addition, and more broadly, we seek to train students to be critical thinkers, scientifically minded, culturally sensitive, promoters of social justice, and above all to be highly ethical and competent in their particular area of specialization. The Counselor Education mission statement embodies the personal and professional commitment that is required for those individuals who are intent on making a difference for people in our society.
