The Master of Science in clinical counseling program at Charleston Southern University consists of 60 credit hours, including a practicum and internship. Students will achieve student learning outcomes upon completion of the program. A full-time, three-year plan is shown below. However, our program does offer a part-time degree completion (four-year) plan which will consist of two courses per semester for the first two years.
