Program Information

Degrees Offered:


Format: Campus

Program Description:

The 51-unit program can serve as a post-baccalaureate, pre-doctoral training program. This is especially useful for students who were not undergraduate psychology majors, completed a baccalaureate degree many years ago, or want additional background and training in the field. Usually, these students combine their classwork with research opportunities during the Master's program. Students may choose to add one of our three emphases to their degree (Latino Counseling, Correctional Psychology or Health Psychology). Please note, the Master of Arts degree in Counseling does not meet the requirements to sit for a license in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) or Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in any state.
