Clinical Counseling Degree - Master of Science
The Master of Science in Clinical Counseling (MSCC) is a 60 credit graduate program modeled on national licensing standards for individuals who are preparing to deliver direct mental health services and are pursuing mental health licensure to deliver these services. The MSCC is inclusive of 100 hours of practicum (40 hours of observation) and 900 hours of clinical internship (60% direct client contact). Residential and online students are responsible to complete these practicum and clinical internship hours under the supervision of a licensed counselor. Online students may complete clinical hours in their home state through an accountability and approval process with Bellevue University’s Internship Director. Candidates for this master’s degree program must have completed a prerequisite requirement of 6 credit hours in the behavioral sciences.
*Education requirements for licensure vary from state to state. It is your responsibility to evaluate whether the Master of Science in Clinical Counseling meets the licensure requirements particular to the state in which you plan to practice. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm with the Department of Human Services (or similar agency) in his/her respective state to guarantee necessary coursework meets the state’s current licensure requirements.
For successful completion of the MSCC program, a comprehensive exam is required. The exam is offered twice a year and may be taken upon completing 75% of the course work. Students are not required to complete a second comprehensive exam if they have already passed the comprehensive exam that is part of the Master of Science Human Services degree.
