Molloy’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program Earns Accreditation
Molloy College is pleased to announce that The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), has granted accreditation to the College's Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) Master of Science program. CACREP is considered the premier accrediting body for counseling programs in the United States.
"In a short period of time, Molloy's Clinical Mental Health Counseling program has become one of the finest in the region," said Dr. Drew Bogner, the College's president. "We look forward to continued growth as our graduates bring their skills into the many communities we serve." Molloy launched its CMHC program in 2015, graduating its first class in 2018.
"Being granted CACREP accreditation along with our launch of the Department's Mental Health and Wellness Center, small class sizes, and available graduate scholarships for incoming students, allows us to effectively accomplish our goal of mentoring compassionate counselors for our communities," stated Dr. Laura Kestemberg, Program Director and Associate Dean.
The Molloy College CMHC Master of Science program is designed to provide graduate students the professional identity, core knowledge, necessary counseling skills and multi-cultural sensitivity to excel in a variety of mental health settings. The 60-credit-hour, part-time, evening program can be completed in three years.
