On-campus/In-person Program Blending Theory and Practice
With a master’s degree in Counseling and Career Development, you’ll be equipped to help people of all ages develop self-awareness, decision-making, and self-advocacy skills needed to live successful lives. Upon graduation, all students are licensure-eligible and eligible to become National Certified Counselors. This is an in-person/on-campus program only.
Many of our students come from backgrounds such as:
- Public and private school teaching
- Social work
- Human development
- Postsecondary education
- Employment agencies
If your background is in a different field, don’t let that stop you from applying. More important is your desire to make a difference in others’ lives through a career as a trained, professional counselor.
You’ll complete a general course of study for this Master of Arts degree, including core curriculum, a clinical practicum, and an internship. Additionally, you will choose from three specializations and complete coursework specific to your area of focus.
