How do you reach a person holistically? Christian counseling offers spiritual and emotional healing through the work of Jesus in a person’s life. Whether you are looking to join a Christian practice, or want to bring your faith into a secular practice, the Master’s in Counseling provides the necessary courses that will help you succeed in helping others.

Explore the beauty of the human mind from the perspective of a Christian worldview. Develop practices that help others to understand the spiritual side of existence. Help those to connect with the Transcendence and become a more whole human. You will learn under excellent professors who share the faith and want to help you grow spiritually.

This Master’s online degree in Counseling satisfies the academic requirements for licensure as a professional counselor in the state of Minnesota, as well as many other states. This degree is offered primarily online, with a four-day residency at Crown College’s beautiful campus in May each year. The integration of a Christian worldview into the profession of counseling is emphasized in every part of the program.

This program will prepare students for the MN state LPCC licensure exam, and the coursework satisfies the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy’s requirements in each area of counselor development. Additionally, a structured, 700-hour internship experience, as required by MN LPCC licensure requirements, is built into the program so students can dive into the field and develop skills under close supervision.

Before enrolling in this program students should consult the rules and regulations regarding Professional Licensed Counseling for the particular state that they wish to practice in, to ensure that the program fulfills the requirements of their state.
