Where can this degree take me?
Any ministry involvement in which a knowledge of persons is crucial – but which would not require professional counseling licensure – would benefit from our MA in CM. There are more and more ministries (both in the U.S. and abroad) that would benefit from training in counseling skills and in deeper knowledge of the integration of psychology & the human sciences with Scripture and theology. Additionally, many MDiv students or longtime pastors, church leaders and chaplains find that our MA in CM gives them a much broader base from which to understand and work with people in various counseling situations that don’t require professional licensure.
If you’re looking to become a licensed counselor, you may be interested in our MA in Mental Health Counseling.
