    I am thinking about pursuing a degree in Christian counseling. I am a Police Officer at a State University and often deal with students of all age groups going through all different kinds of personal problems.

    I would also like to have the formal education to be a sort of "Chaplain" if you will. Although I can't really initiate a conversation about Christianity in the course of the job, I would like to be available and for it to be known that I am available for Christian counsel if asked.

    What would be a recommended degree to pursue and where? I would also have to be able to do it online.

    Liberty has a pastoral counseling degree (non-licensure) and a professional counseling degree (licensure track).

    The licensure track does require some on-campus intensives (week-long classes).
