Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling

As an established leader in Christ-centered counseling and ministry education and a university of first choice for top talent, Richmont Graduate University is deeply committed to the integration of Christian theology and spirituality with the theory and practice of mental health for the sake of human flourishing in today’s changing world.

Integration is the term we use at Richmont to refer to how we relate truths we apprehend from Christian theology and spirituality with the theory and practice of clinical mental health counseling and psychology. Our first and deepest commitment is to Christ through our ecumenical Christian heritage and worldview, which compels us to discern truth wherever it may be found.

The Office of Christian Integration exists to facilitate conversation, connection, and critical thinking regarding the ways in which Christian theology, spiritual formation, and clinical mental health coalesce and influence the lives of our students, faculty, staff, and community.
