Public Health – Graduate

Change a degree-major of an existing program

Master of Science – Clinical Mental Health Counseling

Summary of the changes:

The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), the national accrediting body for counseling programs, revised their standards in 2016. The new standards include new content that is not currently in the UNF Clinical Mental Health Counseling program (CMHC) curriculum. As a result, the UNF CMHC program is seeking to change the name of MHS6205 Assessment and Evaluation (3 Credits) to MHS6205 Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis (3 Credits) to reflect needed changes in the current course objectives. The second request is the removal of MHS6070 Psychopathology (3 Credits) from the CMHC program curriculum as objectives under this course are being incorporated into the other program courses. The course removal allows for the third change, the addition of a new course, MHS6XXX Advanced Counseling (3 Credits). This new course will incorporate missing content that will help bring the CMHC program into alignment with the new CACREP accrediting standards while also delivering the content necessary for program graduates to successfully pass the licensure exam and obtain employment in the field. These changes do not alter the overall program length or cost. This APC package also includes editorial changes to the Program Of Study (i.e., adding credit hours to Major Electives).
