Welcome

Dear Prospective Student,

The Center for Counseling and Family Studies, a department in the College of Arts and Sciences, promotes the biblical requisites for competent Christian counseling. In addition to supporting academic programs, the Center also sponsors annual conferences exploring a variety of counseling and family issues.

The Graduate Counseling program, launched in 1981, is committed to providing quality professional training for healing human hurts from a perspective permeated by Christian faith. Our training in theory and practice of counseling is designed for those seeking career opportunities in mental health agencies, hospital programs, private practices, church-related counseling centers, and other public and private facilities.

Liberty has always sought to produce Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills required to impact tomorrow's world. Our academic programs will prepare professionals who will demonstrate the highest levels of competence and determination. Viewing their vocations as a calling to do the will of God and to demonstrate a godly sensitivity to the needs of others, these specialists explore all dimensions of counseling, including the ethical, moral, and clinical issues in church and culture.

We look forward to serving you.

In His service, 
 
Dr. Tim Clinton, LPC
Executive Director, Center for Counseling and Family Studies
