Classes are scheduled in late afternoons and evenings. The program consists of six full semesters, including two summer sessions. A new class of students enrolls each fall semester and follows a fall-spring-summer rotation, finishing after the second summer. Courses meet on the main campus of Milligan College in Northeast Tennessee, and some courses are available online.
Teaching you is more than a job to our faculty — it’s a mission. The faculty are dedicated Christian professionals who go above and beyond to challenge you and stretch your mind. They bring real world experience into the classroom every day because they continue to work in the fields they teach. Small class sizes provide personal interaction, exceptional training, and hands-on lab experience that will prepare you for success as a Licensed Professional Counselor or school counselor.

The Milligan Counseling Center
The Milligan Counseling Center offers counseling services for the health and well-being of our campus community and provides an internship or practicum experience for Master of Science Counseling students.
Individuals may need counseling if a problem at school, work, home, or in personal relationships is causing stress significant enough to interfere with normal functioning. Students, faculty, and staff may also pursue counseling for personal growth and development, such as pre-marital counseling or personal wellness.
