We offer a 60 credit hour, Regionally-accredited, Master’s level online Counseling degree, in addition to Pastoral Counseling and Alcohol and Drug Counseling Masters degrees.
The Master of Arts in Counseling degree leads to licensure in the State of Minnesota. It may or may not meet the specific licensing requirements in other states, which, therefore, may mean additional action is needed to fulfill an individual state’s licensing requirements. There may also be state restrictions related to fully online programs. Applicants and graduates should contact their state’s licensing board to determine the requirements needed in the state in which they are seeking licensure. Once graduated, most students will complete a state-determined number of supervised practice hours and an exam prior to gaining independent licensure.
The program is designed to work with your schedule. Your advisor will help you determine a course sequence that works with your circumstances.
Those students who choose to attend classes full time (approximately 9 credit hours per semester) can complete the program in three years.
Crown does accept transfer credits from qualified schools for specific courses. Before enrolling, a transcript evaluation can be completed to determine the number of credits that will transfer.
Practicum and Internship may be completed at a qualifying counseling site of the student’s choice. Students will receive approval of their Practicum and Internship sites by our Internship Coordinator who will check to determine whether the site and supervisor are qualified to provide the experience. Students choose their own site but Crown will assist as needed.
