Careers: M.Coun. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling

The Master of Counseling degree with an option in clinical mental health counseling is designed for those who want to work in community counseling agencies, rehabilitation facilities, college counseling centers, primary care facilities, veteran affairs and private practice offices.

Employment of mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists is projected to grow 19 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Handbook. This BLS explains that growth is expected in both occupations as more people have mental health counseling services covered by their insurance policies.

Graduates of this program can expect to work full time in a variety of settings, including mental health centers and private practice.

For information about job prospects for these career fields, please visit the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Handbook. OSU Career Services is also a great resource to explore student career opportunities.
