Degrees & Programs
Help others manage their challenges and live up to their full potential.
Our Counseling degrees prepare you for a career as a counselor in mental health or school settings. You’ll gain the confidence, qualifications, and skills needed to help clients overcome their challenges.
Explore the latest counseling theories, take part in evidence-based practice, and acquire the knowledge and tools needed to succeed. You’ll also gain real-world experience in a clinical or school setting.
Our course work follows the scientist-practitioner model, where research informs your clinical practice, and your classroom experiences inform your theoretical understanding of the field.
We’re looking for competent, ethical, culturally responsive and passionate students who share a deep commitment to inclusivity, particularly with respect to voices and experiences that have been traditionally marginalized or left out.
