The Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology is designed to develop highly qualified healthcare professionals and leaders in the field of counseling psychology. Through a program of study focused on critical theories, research and applications of psychology with an emphasis on the social, political, economic, and cultural contexts of practice, as well as hands-on field experience in various healthcare settings, students develop the skills needed to meet the increasing demand for counseling psychology services in hospitals, schools, universities, social service agencies, mental health centers, substance abuse treatment clinics, and private companies.
Students will learn how to access, understand, critically evaluate, and utilize available research and theory to shape their work in a variety of human service milieus and/or in pursuing doctoral level education. The coursework and fieldwork of the Counseling Psychology Program at Regis adheres to the scientist-practitioner-advocate training model (Fassinger & O’Brien, 2000) in preparing graduates for employment in academic, research, and/or service delivery settings.
