graduate counseling program
Currently offered on Huntington University's main campus and in Fort Wayne.
Huntington University Graduate School provides Christ-centered,
quality counselor training that promotes both scholarship and service.
Our students work to redeem the world one client at a time through
understanding and applying our core values of grace, truth, awareness,
reconciliation, and community.
We believe that God offers grace (undeserved mercy and favor) through
the person and work of Jesus Christ. We strive to grow in the grace and
knowledge of Jesus and freely offer this grace to our clients.
We believe that God is the author of all truth. God's truth is
revealed through His word (The Bible) and His world (The sciences such
as psychology, counseling, etc.). We will diligently pursue truth
applying it to our lives and the clients we serve.
We constantly strive to be more aware of our clients, our God, and
ourselves. We are most effective when we are fully aware, so we strive
to be self-aware while being fully present with our clients. We will
respect and work within the diverse life experiences and values that our
clients bring to us.
We believe that we were created for relationship and have a need for
healthy attachment. We will work toward reconciliation in the
relationships of our clients. When reconciliation is not possible we
will help our clients work toward forgiveness.
Because of our need for healthy attachment, we grow best with the
support and challenge (accountability) of a community. Both scripture
and research support the truth that people grow and sustain growth with
appropriate social support. We will commit to the influence of community
in our lives and in the clients we serve.
All of our faculty strive to teach and model the above values in all of our interactions with students.
Huntington University Graduate School, offering a MA in Counseling in

the field. Some of the program distinctives include high-quality
faculty, intentionality in faith integration and LMHC licensure,
extensive theoretical breadth, experiential learning opportunities, and a
commitment to community impact. Learn more.

Graduate Counseling Programs in Indiana
Because Indiana's licensure requirements are more stringent than most
other states, students who complete their degree at Huntington often
have fewer roadblocks in state-to-state licensure mobility. As
Huntington's MA in Counseling meets or exceeds all of
Indiana's standards for licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor
(LMHC), students from other states needing to complete licensure
requirements can do so at HU. Learn more.
