Master's in Community Counseling
Many individuals, couples, and families utilize non-clinically oriented human service or faith-based agencies to seek assistance with personal adjustment or relational concerns. Issues such as crisis pregnancies, adjustment to normal life transitions, personal loss and grief, parenting skill enhancement, and enhancement of personal wellness are common non-clinical concerns that lead people to seek out the assistance of trained coaches and people helpers.
The 48-credit-hour Master of Arts degree with a major in Counseling and specialization in Community Counseling is a non-licensure track that prepares students for counseling in the community. Our program focuses on Christian counseling.
Upon degree completion, you'll be prepared to provide a source of healing and restoration to those dealing with mental-health-related issues by serving as personal coaches and non-licensed people helpers in private practices, community agencies, and organizational settings. Participants are exposed to a variety of learning environments through the classroom, practicum experience, and internship placement. Graduates discover ways in which personal faith can be integrated with practice.
Courses and practicums for this graduate program are completed at our Indianapolis West Campus or Marion Campus, sites. The Master's in Community Counseling program at Indiana Wesleyan University is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
