What You'll Learn

At Bowie State, we recognize the journey to becoming a professional counselor begins with you. In our advanced degree program, you’ll learn how to:

  • Improve your mental health by identifying your blind spots, behavioral patterns and personal biases
  • Discover your identity as a mental health counselor 
  • Develop unique approaches to support people’s individual needs
  • Participate in community-based classes and culturally relevant research
  • Collaborate with experienced and supportive faculty who bring real-world experience into the classroom

Mental health counseling isn’t just a series of lectures. Application is everything. BSU gives you the skills and confidence to help real people handle the challenges of everyday life.
