A degree to fit your career goals

UIndy's Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling (MHC) is a terminal degree that provides a focused path to earning professional licensure in counseling.  In this clinically-focused program, students will apply knowledge and skills through a 1,000 hour practicum experience.

The MA in Psychology program is an alternative path for students who are drawn to a non-clinical career in psychology, such as a master's level research position, or who are looking to build a solid foundation for entry into a PhD program in psychology. Students will complete this master's degree through one of three tracks tailored to their psychology-related careers interests: forensics, program development and evaluation, or research.

Clinical training in mental health counseling

Students in the MHC and MHC programs will refine their skills in therapy, intervention, consultation, assessment and diagnosis through practicum experience at one of more than 60 affiliated practicum sites. Learn more about the mental health counseling practicum ►
