Christian Counseling

Students in the Christian Counseling program will learn how to identify needs and offer appropriate help to people facing difficult situations. They accomplish this through a careful evaluation of counseling theories and application of those theories through a biblical worldview. (This program is available onsite as a major or a minor.)

Career Opportunities Graduates who complete a Christian Counseling degree are qualified to do personal religious counseling as part of their own ministries. Graduates may be employed to do spiritual counseling in a church, employed as a camp counselor, or work in certain social service positions. A graduate is prepared to meet the entrance requirements of a graduate counseling program, which is required to be eligible for state licensure, both of which are required in many professional contexts.

This program may be right for you if you:

  • Desire to help people work through their problems from a Christian perspective
  • Want to develop more of an understanding of the human mind and how it works
  • Wish to pursue a ministry where you can be a help to those struggling through personal, marital, or faith issues

 

The Christian Counseling degree program can either be pursued as a four year major or as a minor in conjunction with any of our other major options. With classes like Basic Counseling Methods, Practical Theology for Counselors, and Abnormal Psychology, the Christian Counseling program is designed to:

  • Help students grow in their empathy and understanding of people
