Mental Health Counseling


Mental Health Counseling prepares people to provide mental health services to individuals and groups in public and private settings.  Graduates of this program often obtain LPC licensure with a Mental Health Service Provider endorsement, which allows then to work with cases of a more diagnostic and clinical nature.  Licensure requires supervised clinical experience beyond the hours required for a degree.


The Mental Health Counseling Program at Tennessee Technological University is committed to developing professional counselors who are competent, caring, and prepared to meet the mental health needs of a culturally diverse and technological society. Special emphasis is placed on personal development as well as professional development to become effective mental health service providers for the larger community and region.
