FHU to Begin Online Graduate Program In Clinical Mental Health Counseling

DECEMBER 18, 2012

Freed-Hardeman University will begin an integrated residential/online graduate program in clinical mental health counseling in January 2013, according to Dr. Mike Cravens, director of graduate studies in mental health counseling.


The 60-hour program will lead to a Master of Science in clinical mental health counseling. It is designed to meet Tennessee Department of Health licensure requirements for licensed professional counselors/mental health services providers as well as requirements for the National Board of Certified Counselors.

Classes will be offered on nights and weekends in Henderson and Memphis and online. The program includes a mix of traditional classroom instruction and web-based courses.

“This program integrates elements of the core mental health professions with principles of the Christian faith to produce graduates ready for the clinical practice of mental health counseling,” Cravens said.

Those interested in obtaining more information about the program, admission requirements and a course schedule should contact Cravens at mcravens@fhu.edu or Conita Fader at cfader@fhu.edu. They may also call 1-800-FHU-FHU1, extension 6638.
