The Master of Arts in Professional Counseling (MAPC) program is a professional/practitioner counseling program. This program prepares learners to apply and sit for the two examinations for licensure in the State of Illinois. The first, the National Counselor Examination, if passed results in the Licensed Professional Counselor License (LPC). This content area examination may be taken immediately post-graduation. The second examination, the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination may be taken after two years of supervised clinical practice, post-graduation. If the NCE and the NCMHCE examinations are both passed, the graduate becomes eligible for the license of Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Illinois (LCPC). The LCPC allows the individual to be engaged in private practice.

The program normally spans three years; however, candidates who come into the program with Olivet’s PSYC 461 - Counseling Process and Technique  and PSYC 467 - Psychotherapy  or equivalent coursework may finish in two years. Students should contact the program director for more information.
