Program Code: ME6278
counseling student role play

The Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling dual program allows students to obtain specialization in both clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. Within 2-3 years, students complete course work for both specializations, one practicum, and two 600- hour internships (1 in CMHC and 1 in School Counseling). The internships are completed separately across at least 3 semesters. The dual track prepares students to take the state tests required for being a licensed professional counselor and a licensed school counselor in the state of Ohio.

Professional Engagement

CMHC students are encouraged to become involved in professional counseling organizations during their program. Belonging to a professional organization encourages collaboration and advocacy, promotes professionalism and leadership, and gives students the opportunity to meet colleagues and leaders throughout the state and nation.

Counseling students from all specializations can participate in the activities and professional development opportunities of the Alpha chapter of the Chi Sigma Iota (CSI) International Counseling Honor Society, the American Counseling Association (ACA), and its divisions, as well as the Ohio Counseling Association (OCA). The American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) is the primary national organization specific to clinical mental health counseling. Our students and alumni are engaged in service, hold leadership positions, and participate in professional development in many of these organizations.
