Students enrolled in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program complete 1,000 clock hours of clinical experiences starting in the summer of their second year (or third year in the part-time program) and finishing the following summer. These placements give students real-world experience and help them deploy the skills and content they are learning in the classroom with a supervised caseload of their own. Our counselors-in-training are well-prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation and are sought after by the agencies in the Northwest Indiana region.

Within program and accreditation parameters, students are empowered to seek their own practicum and internship sites according to their interest areas and desired clinical populations/concerns. The CMHC program has close relationships with many sites in the region such as with incarcerated populations, addiction recovery facilities, inpatient/hospital settings, residential treatment centers, community agencies, college/university counseling centers, private practices, and more.
