Christian counselors are the professionals that people turn to for guidance, support, and direction; counselors are lights in a dark and fallen world. In many cases God has gifted these counselors with the spiritual gifts of exhortation, discernment, wisdom and mercy. The Master of Arts in Counseling is a professional degree that builds upon God’s gifting and calling, allowing the counselor to shepherd individuals and families through difficult times


Announcing two new MAC degree tracks Licensure and Ministry.

The first track is the MA in Counseling—Licensure Track, designed for those desiring LPC licensure in Texas. This 76-hour track assists students in obtaining all the academic and practicum requirements for LPC licensure in Texas and meets the new academic and hour requirements implemented by the state on August 1, 2017.

The second track is the MA in Counseling—Ministry Track, designed for those who want a counseling degree, but desire to use it in ministry settings where licensure is not required. This 58-hour track provides a substantive counseling degree, but does not require some of the technical, upper-level courses that are necessary for licensure.
