The Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling offered by Southern New Hampshire University is designed to prepare students to meet the educational requirements for licensure in most states.

SNHU's MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree does not currently meet the requirements for licensure in Arkansas, Kansas and Wisconsin.

While the SNHU MA in Clinical Mental Counseling program considers the two face-to-face residencies to be an integral part of the counseling training, we will always protect the health of our students and faculty. During the Covid-19 pandemic, this has meant, at times, holding virtual residencies. When we resume face to face residencies, there may be vaccination and masking requirements. Please contact an admission counselor to learn more about the current situation and how it may apply to your educational journey.
