As a graduate counseling student at CCU, your foundation will be built on a solid core of study in diverse areas such as group dynamics, psychopharmacology, counseling methods, intervention strategies, ethics, and professional development. You’ll explore theories of personality, marriage and family systems, developmental psychology, group therapy, and career development, all from the perspective of the Christian worldview. Your courses will also examine psychopathology, cross-cultural counseling principles, lifestyle counseling, and the concepts and techniques of hypothesis testing, research design and analysis as used in counseling research and program design.
All this comes together in an innovative capstone course focusing on an integration of psychology and theology, theory and application, as well as in your counseling practicum – an initial experience in providing direct service to clients in individual, family, and group formats.
The Master's in Counseling program will equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to become an influential and effective licensed professional counselor. Throughout the program, you will be challenged to apply what you learn in the classroom and on field experiences and use it to make an impact in your community, church, and family.
Upon completion of the master's in counseling program, graduates are prepared to take the National Counselor Exam, which is the licensure exam for the state of Colorado and many other states.
The Master of Arts in Counseling degree program is a great match for the student interested in a Christian counseling degree.
