ABOUT THIS DEGREE PROGRAM:   The Master of Arts in Christian Counseling degree program consists of courses that will enable the student to develop to another level in the field of Christian Counseling.  The program consists of eight courses which are the equivalent of forty hours of study. Texts must be selected from the list of Authorized Textbooks provided below.  Although all textbooks may be ordered simultaneously, assignments must be submitted one at a time.  Once a textbook is read, a 10 to 20 page paper describing what was read must be submitted for grading.    A four to six page paper is required for each No Travel Seminar.  We are simply asking students for a summary of the material.

A one to three page paper is required for each Christian Counseling verbatim report.  Verbatim reports are word-for-word reports of actual counseling or ministry care dialogue sessions. Verbatim reports may cover formal counseling sessions as well as time spent with someone in a helpful situation such as a hospital visit, nursing home visit or a conversation with someone at church.  Each Verbatim report should begin with a paragraph describing the setting in which the counseling or dialogue session took place.  Each Verbatim report should conclude with a paragraph summarizing the Student’s perception of the result of the counseling or ministry care dialogue session. Review the How to Submit Your Work tab concerning submission of all assignments.
