Master of Arts in Counseling

Graduate coursework is progressively more advanced in academic content than any of the undergraduate programs offered at The Baptist College of Florida. Graduate programs focus on higher-level learning and research in the major issues and significant scholarly literature of the respective fields. All graduate students (MACS, MACO, and MAMWL) will be required to take GR 501. Introduction to Graduate Research in their first semester of graduate study. This course will assist them in further developing research methodology, in learning to conduct research in primary sources, and in upper-level writing skills and techniques. Each successive course will also require graduate-level research and writing. As students near the end of the program, various evaluations will be required that will expect the student to analyze, synthesize, and integrate graduate-level concepts. Specifically, the MAMWL program will conclude with a Comprehensive Exam, Internship, and a combined Research/Performance Project.

The Master of Arts in Counseling is a practice oriented degree designed to equip students with counseling skills for use in ministry, missions or any human services career where counseling is practiced without a professional license. Interpersonal helping skills and counseling models are anchored in a Christian worldview, for the purpose of developing the spiritual, mental, emotional, behavioral, and relational well-being of others.
