The online Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling — Military Resilience program offered by Liberty University School of Behavioral Sciences is suited for individuals looking to minister to service members and their families. The program equips students to work in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, churches, community centers, and state agencies. With an emphasis on the resilience of leaders and caregivers, the strength of military marriages and families, healthy transitions from active service to civilian life, and the mental and behavioral health of service members, students are prepared to provide godly counsel to our nation’s heroes.

Graduates of this program will minister to the military community, and help educate them about the physical, social, spiritual, and mental needs associated with the hidden wounds of war. This degree may assist students seeking professional licensure, although it does not meet all licensure requirements.
