Counseling Program Earns CACREP Accreditation

Cincinnati Christian University is pleased to announce that our Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program, housed within the Department of Behavioral Sciences, has been accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) in clinical mental health counseling. CACREP is the national accrediting body for graduate-level programs in the counseling field, such as counseling programs in addiction counseling, school counseling, marriage & family counseling, and clinical mental health counseling.

This accreditation completes a two-year process in which faculty, staff, supervisors, students, and graduates participated. Obtaining CACREP accreditation indicates that the program has been recognized for the high quality of the training it provides, and that it has been evaluated to ensure that it meets training standards set by the counseling profession. Students graduating with a CACREP-accredited degree can more easily obtain state counseling licensure and find greater portability between state licensing boards. Students with CACREP-accredited counseling degree are also more easily able to be accepted into doctoral programs.

CCU is currently the only Church of Christ/Christian Church-affiliated institution that has a CACREP-accredited counseling program.
