Mental Health MS
Essential to the implementation of the Mental Health Counseling (MHC) program curriculum is the integration of theory presented in classrooms and its application in practicum and internship experiences. In order to integrate the curriculum content with other training experiences, the program provides information about the socio-political contexts of people’s lives as well as about information related to personality, development, psychiatric taxonomy, professional orientation and ethics, methods of inquiry and the process of change.
