Although similar to other programs in research and emphasis on clinical experience, our curriculum and education process is unique in its
This program provides both a strong emphasis on research, clinical expertise, and an integrative Christian worldview. The MSCP believes that strong clinical expertise built on rigorous research and integrated with a Christian worldview is an effective way for providing clients quality mental healthcare.
Our program’s coursework is consistent with Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) requirements in the state of South Carolina and potentially other states. However, students should contact their state’s board to be aware of any additional requirements.

The program has applied for Southern Association of Council of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and is currently in the application process. Accreditation is anticipated by May of 2018, as our university is in good standing with the accreditation board.
Our program incorporates fall semesters, spring semesters, and brief summer semesters. The first two years are curriculum based, and the third and final year is based on clinical experience through internship and practicum. However, students who take our part-time degree completion plan complete the program in four years.
Classes are offered two evenings out of each week. Our program is designed to allow for employment and other dimensions of life.
Our students begin classes as cohorts each fall semester. Students will progress through the program with their starting cohort.
We use a rolling admissions process, so applying earlier will allow you to be considered for an earlier interview date. With this approach, it is possible for the program to fill all available seats prior to the July 1st application deadline. Once the cohort is full, remaining applicants will be evaluated for an alternate list.
Any bachelor’s degree that incorporates human services, relies on analytical and problem-solving cognitions, and relies on capable writing skills is acceptable for application. Some examples of non-psychology degrees are sociology, Christian studies, social work, history, and philosophy. This is not a definitive list.
We look at every dimension of the student and each admissions criterion. Not meeting individual requirements should not discourage applicants from applying.
Our program can accommodate 9 credits a semester, but contact the financial aid department for confirmation on this matter.
Our program has a growing number of quality and unique internship sites that will allow our students to grow in their expertise of clinical experience.
