Master of Arts in Counseling
The Baptist College of Florida offers three graduate degrees. The Master of Arts in Christian Studies is a research-oriented degree to prepare graduates for Christian ministry of various types. The Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership is a research- and practice-oriented degree for preparing graduates for advanced work in music and worship fields. The Master of Arts in Counseling is a practice-oriented degree for preparing graduates for work in non-licensure counseling settings. Each graduate degree has its own program student learning outcomes. 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.
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.
