Master of Science in Clinical Counseling

Program Details

The Master of Science in Clinical Counseling is a 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. 

Online students are responsible to complete the practicum and clinical internship hours under the supervision of a licensed therapist. Online students may complete clinical hours in their home state through an accountability and approval process with Bellevue University's Internship Director. It is the student's responsibility to confirm with the Department of Human Services in his/her respective state to guarantee necessary coursework meets current licensure requirements. If the student did not apply for licensure upon completion of the first degree, they may need additional coursework that was not a part of the first degree.


Possess a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university, or a U.S. equivalent degree from a nationally or internationally accredited college or university. Have a GPA of 2.5 or better. May require letters of recommendation and essays.
