MS in Clinical Psychology at Benedictine provides the opportunity to pick from three subspecialties to better prepare you for your own professional goals. These include the child subspecialty, marriage and family subspecialty, and an addictions subspecialty. The program also prepares students for both the Illinois Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) exam, and the Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) exam. We have gone through some changes recently, as we are transitioning from a quarter system to a semester system here. This means that our program takes less credits to complete now, saving our students time and money. Our program has gone from 90 required credits to 60 credits, made up by 53 credit hours of coursework and 7 credit hours devoted to internship work. As a fun fact, there is no fee to apply.
