MSCJS/MSMHC Dual Degree

The fields of mental health, human services, and crime and justice are becoming increasingly interdependent. Our Master of Science in Crime & Justice Studies/Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling dual-degree program seeks to bridge the existing gaps between these sectors to ensure you have a solid foundation in each area. This dual-degree program will help you qualify for Massachusetts licensure and maximize your career potential.

Whether you choose to work in the private or public sector, our program will help you serve populations in need and treat issues holistically. Your crime and justice courses will allow you to explore the causes, contexts, and policies that can lead to or exacerbate mental illness. In your counseling courses, you will learn to assess, diagnose, and treat individuals and groups with various mental health issues. You’ll complete the mental health curriculum full-time, and may pursue the crime & justice studies curriculum full- or part-time.
