Curriculum - Courses


The Master of Arts in Counseling is a 48-credit program in which six hours may be earned by completing an applied practicum required for state licensure. The degree will provide opportunity for intensive study and training in a variety of approaches to counseling. Many students will work during graduate training - either in the field or otherwise - and the program is designed with that in mind. Both online and on-campus classes are integrated into the curriculum to allow for in-depth training and growth while providing an accelerated format.
