The LaGrange Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is a 60 credit-hour program that may be finished within two calendar years. 

The program is designed to prepare students to be licensed professional counselors in the state of Georgia, as well as surrounding states. Graduates may apply for licensure and practice in a variety of settings, including private practice and community agencies, such as mental health centers, hospitals, outpatient and residential drug treatment centers and agencies serving children adolescents and families.


The content of the courses will be delivered through assigned readings, seminar discussions, multimedia presentations, case presentations, and small group discussions. Some of the courses offered in our program are in hybrid format where work is completed both in and outside of the classroom.
