Overview

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program offered by the Lipscomb University allows students to provide counseling services in a variety of settings in the community such as mental health centers, private practices, and churches. Our program’s emphasis on faith integration is especially helpful for those who wish to practice in faith-related settings (although students are not limited to only these settings). 

The degree requires a core set of classes that are required for all students seeking LPC licensure in Tennessee as well as elective hours that allow students to acquire the minimum of 60 graduate hours needed for this licensure.

Students are also required to complete one year of practicum and internship totaling 750 hours of supervised clinical experience; this experience helps the students develop their skills as counselors, preparing them for the counseling profession.

Students may also choose to specialize in play therapy by taking two play therapy electives and one semester of Internship in play therapy. Students also have the option of completing a thesis if they are considering a future doctorate degree.
