Career Path: Counselling Ministry
Graduates of the M.A. Counselling program practice as a mental health professional or counselling therapist. Previous graduates have found meaningful employment in ministry within their denomination, service in para-church counselling agencies, community mental health agencies, both faith-based and secular, and crisis intervention programs.
The M.A. Counselling program will prepare you to care for people who feel lost in the spiritual, psychological, and relational problems of life. This program is distinct in its integration of a theologically-informed worldview and modern psychological knowledge.
The courses in the program include a series of counselling practica, where you learn to responsibly manage a caseload of therapy clients; classroom courses to develop the necessary knowledge for competent practice; and biblical and theological studies to ground practice in a sound theological worldview. The program is delivered in a flexible format of semester, modular and online courses.
The Providence Counselling Program is also offered in Calgary (courses taken on the campus of Ambrose Seminary). Up to one year of study can be completed by distance education from either campus.
The Seminary also offers a three-year program that allows students to go deeper into specialized areas of counselling.
