Alliant Clinical Counseling Curriculum Receives Approval by National Board of Certified Counselors


SAN DIEGO, CA— Alliant International University’s Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling program curriculum has received approval by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC), meeting the highest national standards for the practice of counseling and enabling Alliant graduates to apply to become nationally certified counselors. 



National Certified Counselors demonstrate that they have achieved the “highest standard of practice through education, examination, supervision, experience, and ethical guidelines.” The NBCC is the only national certifier of excellence in counseling, enhancing degree portability for Alliant graduates who wish to practice in any state in the nation. Becoming a board-certified counselor also grants our alumni access to specialty certifications and continuing education opportunities through the NBCC. 

“NBCC’s approval of Alliant’s curriculum in its Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling (MACC) program is another hallmark of a high caliber degree program. This recognition elevates the MACC program’s status and provides increased scholarship, employment, and licensing opportunities for our current students and alumni,” said Dr. David Paul, Alliant Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling program director. 

“This approval is the result of the excellent work by our MACC faculty and staff in creating a program that is of the highest quality. We recognize the tremendous need for mental health services throughout our region and nation and the NBCC certification will allow our graduates to practice in those areas of need,” said Dr. David Stewart, dean of the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University.
