Graduate Studies in Behavioral Sciences

We believe we have well-designed, challenging, and highly successful programs for the Doctorate of Behavioral Health and the M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.  Many of our graduates have secured full-time employment, gained state licensure, continued into doctoral programs, and/or scored well on National Exams. We would like to encourage you to become a part of our growing success.  If we can assist you in any way, please contact our graduate admissions office at 731-989-6101.

Spiritual, mental, and family wellbeing are central to healthy living. And healthy living is key to personal happiness and success. At Freed-Hardeman University, we train students from a variety of academic backgrounds to lend a hand to those in need of personal, group, couples, or family counseling. In our Graduate Studies in Behavioral Science programs, we offer an approach to therapy while rooting the coursework in principles of Christian faith.
