Grace College’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program was recently named one of the state’s best values by Top Counseling Schools. Grace ranked 4th in Indiana.
Top Counseling Schools aids higher learning by providing objective information for counseling students and professionals. Using the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs directory, accredited counseling programs are found in each state. Top Counseling Schools then ranks these schools based on completion rate, job placement rate, licensing exam pass rate, accreditation length, research productivity, tuition and fees.
Grace College’s Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling trains graduate students to excel as professional counselors. They are taught to be scripturally grounded, professionally skilled and interpersonally competent. Upon completion, students are qualified to seek state licensure or pursue doctoral studies in counseling. The program is offered online and on-campus; both are CACREP-accredited.
Tom Edgington, dean of the School of Behavioral Science at Grace College, calls the counseling program unique because “it combines a strong biblical foundation with effective skills and methods.” Serving on the Grace faculty since 1992, Edgington has seen the School of Behavioral Science grow and develop in great ways. “Our top-notch faculty are attracting bright, promising students to study at Grace. Our newly-renovated facility is a wonderful place to learn. Students who want a faith-based program with a strong clinical emphasis should visit Grace,” he said.
