Master of Arts in Counseling

The M.A. in Counseling offers concentrations in two areas: Clinical Mental Health Counseling and  School Counseling. Both concentrations are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Students experience a unique blend of high-quality theoretical training and clinical experience in a holistic Christian atmosphere. Additionally, the program maintains a student-faculty ratio of less than 12:1, allowing for more direct interaction and engagement between faculty and students.

Students will benefit from Johnson’s accreditationaffordable tuition, and an experienced and engaged faculty passionate about each student’s success. The course format of this hybrid program based at Johnson’s Tennessee campus includes in-class discussion, experiential activities, and online learning. Flexible scheduling options allow students to complete the program in 3-5 years, with many students working throughout the program. Most courses require students to be on campus in a class residency two weekends per term per course.
