Professional Counseling

The mission of the Webster University professional counseling degree program is to provide high quality learning experiences that develop professional counselors who endeavor toward individual excellence and enhancing the quality of life in local, national, and global societies. We strive to form a culturally diverse program with a base of faculty and students who master the knowledge and skills to practice effectively in careers in mental health and human service agencies, educational institutions, private practice and government, business and industrial settings.

The MA in counseling professional degree program is designed to prepare individuals for careers in clinical mental health counseling with the necessary knowledge, practice, and skills for working with individuals, couples, children, families, and groups in a variety of mental health settings. Note that not all emphases are offered at all campuses. Successful completion of the program means eligibility for licensure as a counselor at the state where the program is offered.
