As you train to be a skilled clinical mental health counselor, your graduate program will emphasize academic and experiential learning, and learning about self. You’ll be prepared for professional counselor licensure as well as advanced graduate work.
Loyola’s Counseling Program offers eligible counseling graduate students a carefully designed curriculum that will prepare them personally, academically, and professionally to become skilled clinical mental health counselors. One of the program’s core beliefs is that effective professional counselor preparation requires a continuous blending of three types of learning: academic learning, experiential learning, and learning about self. Thus, this program, consistent with the Jesuit philosophy of educating the whole person, is designed to help students gain knowledge, understanding, and skills in a planned sequence that builds toward more advanced concepts and more sophisticated clinical interventions. Ethical, social, and cultural concerns are emphasized throughout the program.
