Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Department of School, Family and Mental Health Professions
Students in our Clinical Mental Health Counseling program include individuals seeking to serve a variety of populations. Our students often have a background in psychology or other social sciences and most are seeking to enter the profession of counseling by earning licensure as Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs). Read on to learn more about our current students and alumni outcomes.
Graduates of the M.A. in Counseling with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counseling typically seek licensure as Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs) with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) or in another state. Some continue on to doctoral work. No matter their plans, our students can count on the advice and support of our Counseling faculty and our Career Services counselors for assistance with next steps.
Valuable information on licensure pathways can be found on the BBS website and the California Association for Licensed Professional Clinical Counelors website.
Because the LPCC licensure is still quite new in the state of California, we do not yet have data on exam passage rates of our graduates in comparison to state averages.
