Overview

Liberty University ’s  Human Services Counseling - Criminal Justice (Online) degree does not require any on-campus visits and has no thesis requirement, making it easier for you to fit graduate courses into your busy schedule. 

While this degree primarily focuses on human services counseling, the criminal justice concentration covers essential skills that can complement your training in human services. Police officers, social workers, or those currently employed by the family service sector can benefit from training in criminal justice — a career field that is often accompanied by trauma, rehabilitation, and intense stress.

As a Christian university, Liberty is committed to training human services professionals who can apply scientific research, clinical tools, and a biblical worldview to their practice. As such, the online master’s in human services counseling can help equip you to better serve clients who struggle with life’s challenges by addressing their social, psychological, and spiritual needs.

The criminal justice area of study for the online Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling program includes training designed to help human services professionals apply theories of counseling and human behavior to support mental health and personal growth in correctional facilities and police stations.

Your career in correctional counseling starts here! Apply today and become a force for good in the criminal justice or human services field.
