    Masters in Human Services?????????

    Since I am positive that I will be getting a second Masters degree my husband suggested that I just get my Masters in Human Service with a concentration in something I am interested in. Sounds great except I can't find any online other than Liberty University and Nova Southeastern University . I am interested in Nova Southeastern 's program however I can't find the tuition cost for the program I am interested in, Masters in Human Services in Child Protection concentration child protection and juvenile justice and it looks expensive for their other programs..

    In any case anyone know of any online Masters in Human Services other than those listed above?

    Thanks! I forgot about using them and I forgot to list the usual's like Walden, Capella etc but I am hoping to find something less expensive.

    If you haven't picked a specialization in Human Services, I recommend addictions counseling ; it is not a very well paid profession, but you will be demand for the conceivable future, especially if marijuana is legalized. Your church and community needs you right now.

    Check out the addictions counseling degrees at Aspen University.

    Dave- I would love to do addictions counseling actually and was considering getting my Masters in addiction counseling . I am not worried about the money really, I want to do a rewarding job more than one that pays well.

    I don't know very much about licensure in TX and reciprocity with other states but I will read up on it.

    As far as becoming a counselor intern, I highly recommend that you volunteer at an agency to start getting hours and making connections. Private message me and I can discuss that further.

    Re your interest in a Child Protection concentration and juvenile justice: Prairie View A&M University offers an online MS in Juvenile Justice (MSJJ); perhaps this program may be of interest to you … I’m certain the tuition will be less prohibitive than that of Nova Southeastern (?).

    Here I am playing the CACREP police again. Here is a list of ALL online degrees accredited by CACREP... the American Counseling Association's accrediting body.

    I'll spare the soap box lecture. Basically, look into why it is or is not important for you to graduate from a program that is CACREP-accredited, if you want to go into counseling (as opposed to social work , MFT, etc).

    Not sure of "Hadashi no Gen"s agenda related to CACREP schools. There are lots of accredited non-CACREP counseling graduate schools out there. Hadashi no Gen keeps bringing up the DOD/VA issue; not sure that limiting yourself from that highly specific clientel should be the determining factor in choosing a graduate program.

    Here we go again. Listen man... I am bringing up an issue that is important for counselors. If someone is going into the field and plans to be a mental health clinician, veterans and military are one of the most undeserved populations by good counselors. As counselors we are not ethically able to pick and choose our clients, are we? Sure we can have preferences about the thype of therapist that we are (ie: "I work best with children," "I am a good DBT therapist," etc)... but it is our job to help and advocate for who is undeserved and in need. I am surprised that you are offended, then, by my looking out for aspiring colleagues stating true information.

    Are you a Liberty grad?

    Anyway... please deal with your own issues before attacking me and making me out to look like a troll.
