EdS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
The EdS degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling prepares professionals who are knowledgeable about cultural influences on human development and who can meet client concerns from diverse cultural perspectives. A central goal of the program is to prepare culturally sensitive practitioners who, regardless of the setting, base their practices on scholarly inquiry.
Graduates of the clinical mental health counseling program are prepared to serve in a wide variety of professional roles, including counseling and consultation on personal and educational issues and career development and adjustment.
Graduates of this program are eligible to apply for licensing as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Illinois upon graduation. Graduates are then subsequently eligible to apply for licensing as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Illinois after receiving two years of post-degree supervised experience.
