Our master of science in clinical mental health counseling is dedicated to training professional counselors in evidence-based and emerging best practices and prepares students to practice as a professional counselor. This unique master's in clinical health counseling also offers graduate students optional specializations in Child/Adolescent Counseling and Addictions Counseling.
Course work focuses on human development, psychopathology, assessment, theories of counseling, consultation, crisis and disaster response, ethical and legal issues, multicultural issues and counseling research, as well as individual, group, family and counseling interventions. Field experiences, small group experiences and practicum and internships are required and lead to the development of science-practice integration in all of our graduates.

Most of the scholarships and assistantships that we offer go to doctoral students, but occasionally there are assistantships given to master's students. We will not know the number of assistantships available to next year's students until our admissions offers are sent out during the middle of the spring semester.
Master's students who are primary and secondary school teachers in southeastern Wisconsin are eligible for two scholarship opportunities: the Milwaukee Area Teachers Scholarship, which provides scholarships for K-12 teachers from the greater Milwaukee area, and the Catholic Schools Scholarship, which covers part of the tuition for students employed by Archdiocese of Milwaukee schools. These scholarships are available only to students enrolled at Marquette.
