Our students intern in diverse settings and leave with substantial skills and knowledge around mental health, counseling, and advocacy, ready for counseling positions that will prepare them to obtain licensure.
At the University of Massachusetts Boston we offer a master degree in Mental Health. Essential to the implementation of the Mental Health Counseling (MHC) program curriculum is the integration of theory presented in classrooms and its application in practicum and internship experiences.
In order to integrate the curriculum content with other training experiences, the program provides information about the socio-political contexts of people’s lives as well as about information related to personality, development, psychiatric taxonomy, professional orientation and ethics, methods of inquiry and the process of change. In addition, our program provides opportunities for its students to develop professional skills and competencies and to practice them in professional settings.
- The MHC curriculum emphasizes respect for the social foundations and cultural diversity of self and all others.
- The curriculum is also designed to facilitate students’ integration of their personal and professional identities as mental health counselors. We aim to foster each student’s self-awareness, compassion, and ability to think critically.
- The ability to apply these critical thinking skills to counseling practice through a social justice lens is one of many that allow our students to competently work with individuals from a variety of backgrounds.
