Our programs provide training for those interested in the mental health counseling field. For more than 30 years, our master's programs have incorporated the best in counselor education training with a holistic perspective. Our graduates are prepared for the mental health counseling licensure exam and the world of work as professional mental health counselors.
We offer a 60-credit master’s degree in holistic clinical mental health counseling and a 48-credit master’s degree in holistic counseling. Both programs prepare students for careers in the professional counseling field in a variety of settings.
Holistic counseling provides students a unique perspective into the lived experience. We seek to understand each student and client’s developmental growth, honor their personhood and recognize the importance of social justice in their journey. Within our program, students learn how to establish relationships based on respect and empathy, which help clients grow.
Courses are primarily offered at our Newport campus, with select courses offered at our Center for Adult Education in Warwick and online.
