Two graduate programs in Christian counseling broaden options for students

Students interested in pursuing an advanced degree in Counseling have two options at BBC beginning this fall.

BBC's powerful 48-credit M.S. in Counseling Ministries program includes online options and is designed for those pursuing professional counseling careers and licensure. It is now joined by a 30-credit totally online Master of Arts degree featuring a Counseling concentration, a unique option giving students greater skills and options in assisting others in their ministries and churches.

Both programs build students' abilities to better understand people through biblical Christian counseling, grow in their awareness of how the Bible applies to healthy living, and learn from professors and peers who will make a difference in their life and career.
