Leadership in Education, Nonprofits and Counseling

Education systems, nonprofit organizations and counseling centers need wise, empathetic leaders who can keep organizations moving forward through unique challenges. LENC programs take what you’ve learned in professional settings and offer new perspectives to strengthen your leadership abilities. Undergraduates also can benefit from the leadership studies minor, which provides wisdom to apply to campus leadership positions.

The graduate programs are flexible for working professionals. You have the same access to Bradley faculty and the university’s resources whether you’re attending classes on campus or virtually through an online option. Bradley faculty are easy to contact and are willing mentors as you work through your degree.

Though LENC programs value theory, hands-on practice is the heart of the educational experience. That’s why master’s degrees and certificates emphasize internships and clinicals. You can tailor field experiences to meet your career goals and build professional relationships as you work closely with your professional mentors.

The graduate counseling degrees prepare you for certification, as you can take the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE) during your final semester. You can apply for Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) certification or education administrator certification after completing post-graduate programs.
