About the program: 

Christian counseling — also called “biblical counseling” — is a unique form of counseling that blends biblical principles with psychological concepts. Christian counselors use Scripture as a guiding tool to help them serve their clients effectively and address people’s spiritual, mental, and emotional needs. Are you passionate about serving those who are struggling with the challenges of life? Do you want to gain a deeper understanding of Scripture and Christianity while exploring foundational topics in biblical counseling? Then this is the program for you. 

Please note: This is not a clinical psychology program

What you will learn: 

You will learn how to counsel from a Christian perspective and help people discover the healing that lasts through the truth of Scripture. In this program, you’ll take a mix of religion and counseling courses so you can build a diverse, marketable skill set. The ideal candidate for this program would wish to advance their ministry skillset, or they are a clinical professional looking to expand their professional development to understand and connect with those who have spiritual needs. Each course will have an assigned sourcebook. To complete the study, you will be required to summarize each chapter and then complete a reflection assessment to determine your comprehension of the posted material. Once graded, the student advances to the next course. All courses are self-paced, so the student will never worry about juggling class time and the hectic schedule of life. 

What can do with a Christian Counseling Degree? 

Queen's Christian counseling degree online can help you pursue non-licensure counseling roles or positions in church counseling and outreach settings. You could also use this bachelor’s degree to pursue a career in advocacy, case management, church administration, community relations, or lay ministry. For those who already work in a related field, this program can help you strengthen your skillset and serve more effectively in your community.

If you aspire to become a licensed counselor, you’ll typically need a master’s degree — and our Bachelor of Science in Christian Counseling degree online can help provide the foundational training you need to later pursue a degree in clinical mental health counseling. Or, if you later decide to further your non-licensure counseling expertise, our online master’s in pastoral counseling program is a great option.
