Master of Arts in Christian Counseling

Counseling Program at RTS Charlotte

In a world of endless debate about human nature, personality theories, and therapeutic models our desire is to train hopeful, helpful, and confident counselors who love God, His Word, and His Gospel. We say this because our students don’t merely learn theories that will one day fade into obscurity, but rather they learn how to counsel from the timeless truth of God’s unchanging word by applying the gospel of Jesus Christ in all situations.

As RTS Professor John Frame says, “The Word does things that only God can do.” For this reason we believe that the best way to equip men and women to do soul care is to train them thoroughly in God’s Word. Our students receive a world class education in Bible and theology along with practical instruction in how to apply God’s Word to needy people in counseling.

2 Ways to Earn Your Degree

RTS Charlotte offers its Master of Arts program in both Traditional and Summer/Winter intensive tracks. Traditional students enjoy being part of the campus community and complete their degree through traditional semesters.

Summer/Winter students come to the Charlotte campus for two weeks each Summer and Winter to take intensive counseling courses. The Bible and theology requirements can be fulfilled either through RTS Distance Education or RTS Charlotte during the Fall and Spring. This program allows students to remain in their church, ministry, or vocation and still complete their counseling degree.
