Mental Health Concentration
Offered in: Chicago
The Concentration in Mental Health allows undergraduates to learn about psychological well being and distress, personality, and how mental health professionals address these concerns. This concentration sequence also includes an internship course that provides students with first-hand experience assisting others in the community. This concentration is well suited for students who will pursue graduate training in the helping professions or those who may be employed in entry-level mental health positions after graduation.
Five courses (15 credit hours) are needed to earn a Concentration in Mental Health. Three of these courses are required, and students choose two electives from a list of options.
All courses must be passed with a grade of C- or higher. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 is required for all courses in the concentration. Only one class can be transferred from another institution.
