Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling (CACREP-Accredited)
We're proud to announce that Walden University's M.S. in Mental Health Counseling program is now accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP, a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), which is a requirement for licensure in many states). Walden is one of the only schools that offers a CACREP-Accredited M.S. degree in Mental Health Counseling online. When you earn an online degree in human services or mental health counseling, you'll have the flexibility to gain new knowledge and skills while you continue to work and grow in your field.
Through a mix of research, practical application, and coursework, Walden's newly CACREP-accredited M.S. in Mental Health Counseling program can prepare you to integrate knowledge and skills into a career as a successful professional counselor. Developed by leading experts in the field, the CACREP-Accredited M.S. in Mental Health Counseling program is designed to meet the high standards set by CACREP and to provide continuity throughout your learning experience, with each course building upon key competencies.
The program is designed to prepare graduates to qualify to sit for licensing exams and to meet the academic licensure requirements of many state counseling boards. Because no graduate program can guarantee licensure upon graduation, we encourage students to consult the appropriate agency to determine specific requirements.
