The Master's degree program in Counseling Psychology provides systematic training within a practitioner-scientist model to prepare students for professional mental health practice in a wide range of settings. The program is grounded in feminist multicultural philosophy and pedagogy. The program has a particular focus on developing clinicians with a strong understanding of individuals within their gendered and socio-cultural contexts. Particular attention is paid to human sexuality and family psychology. Graduates of the program are expected to be conversant with and competent in the diversity-sensitive applications of individual, systemic/family, and integrative theories. Program graduates enter the marketplace with a degree that is exceptionally flexible, allowing them to pursue state level credentials as Psychological Associates (PA), Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC), and/or Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT; some additional coursework required).
