The Master of Arts in Counseling degree program is designed to prepare students to enter into licensed counseling practice in church, institutional, or private counseling settings by providing training that is biblically, theologically, and clinically focused.

DTS’s unique counseling program integrates best-practices in psychology with deep biblical and theological training enabling you to address the entire person: body, mind, soul, and strength.

The Curriculum

The DTS counseling program includes coursework that covers a variety of psychological, spiritual, emotional, and physical conditions, and integrates it with the same Bible and theology courses taken by pastors and other ministry professionals.
