Program Details

The Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program at Colorado Christian University combines rigorous coursework, experiential learning, and formative relationships into a comprehensive graduate educational experience. What sets the CCU program apart is the Christian framework that promotes study of the whole person, including the spiritual and physiological dimensions.

The MAC program equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become influential and effective licensed professional counselors. Throughout the program, students are challenged to take what they learn in the classroom and on field experiences and use it to make an impact in their communities, churches, and families. Upon completion of the program, graduates are academically prepared to take the National Counselor Exam, which is the licensure exam for the state of Colorado and many other states. The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP) approved curriculum also prepares students to take the licensure exams for clinical mental health in many other states.
