M.S. Community Psychology
The Community Psychology Graduate Program's mission is to provide a contemporary curriculum in a healthy and collegiate environment to students seeking advanced education in the mental health counseling profession. The curriculum is based on Indiana state guidelines and provides students with the academic component necessary for state licensure as a mental health counselor (i.e., LMHC). Students completing all program requirements will be conferred the Master of Science (MS) degree.
The graduate program in Community Psychology is academically structured to develop professional-level mental health counseling skills. Graduates will be able to perform in a variety of community settings where mental health counseling skills are used (e.g., addiction facilities, public, and private mental health counseling centers, correctional facilities, and inpatient psychiatric units). The program's course content and experiential components incorporate a multi-cultural orientation to psychology. Upon degree completion, the graduate will be prepared to enter the professional workforce or continue graduate education toward a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.). This is not a general Master of Psychology Program. The program is tailored for those who want to enter the mental health profession.
Individuals with an M.S. Community Psychology degree will be qualified to seek employment in Addiction Facilities, Public and Private Mental Health Counseling Centers, Correctional Facilities, Inpatient Psychiatric Units, and more.
