The Graduate Program in Counselor Education at Missouri Baptist University is CACREP-aligned (not accredited yet) and offers programs in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling. Each program trains graduate level counselors through rigorous academic and hands-on clinical instruction. We seek to develop conscientious, professional, and highly skilled counselors who promote and facilitate the personal growth, development, and empowerment of those clients/students they serve.
In addition, certification as a Psychological Examiner is a logical extension of the Counselor Education degree program. MBU offers this program for individuals who have a master’s degree in Guidance and Counseling, Counseling Psychology, Educational Psychology or Education and who also possess classroom teaching, special education, or school counselor certification.
The Counselor Education program is rooted in our Christian faith that calls us to love God and love one another.
As of summer 2017, these programs are now offered in place of MBU’s previous Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC).
