The Bradley Advantage

The online master's program in clinical mental health counseling is the same nine-term (including summers) blend of courses and practicum experience you would receive on campus. You learn counseling techniques with an emphasis on Bradley faculty’s expertise in neurocounseling. When you complete the program’s internship and practicum experiences, you choose your own supervisor with assistance from Bradley faculty. Additionally, you visit Peoria for two one-week residencies at Bradley. You take the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Exam and the National Counselor Exam to become eligible for licensure during your final semester. Check with your state for specific counseling licensure requirements.

Successful Outcomes

As a clinical mental health counseling graduate, you’re ready to help people in a wide variety of settings. You can work with families, veterans, or people struggling with substance abuse, grief or crisis situations. Recent Bradley graduates have found employment at hospitals, schools, community agencies, churches, correctional facilities, private practices, university clinics and government agencies.
