With a curriculum structured for completion in as few as 22 months, graduates of the program are well positioned for enhanced employment opportunities and licensure in the field. Graduates will be equipped to pursue various roles, including private practice, inpatient and outpatient treatment centers, community mental health centers, and government agencies.
