REQUIREMENTS: 60 Credit Hours
The Master of Arts in Counselling program is distinct in its integration of a theologically-informed worldview and modern psychological knowledge. Through the counselling program students gain the knowledge, confidence, and competency to integrate critically their Christian world view with mainstream counselling theories and practices to effectively counsel individuals, families, couples, and groups.
The M.A. in Counselling requires 60 credit hours to complete. The program is offered at both our Otterburne campus location or at our Alberta extension site. Up to one year of study can be completed by distance education* from either campus.
*Distance Education consists of a mixture of course delivery methods: Online, Module (week-long courses), Directed Study, and Hybrid (online & modular). The Graduate Certificate in Counselling requires one on-campus course, delivered as a hybrid: CP5501L Counselling Theory Practicum I.
Graduates of the M.A. in Counselling program practice as mental health professionals or counselling therapists. The M.A. in Counselling program meets the requirements to be an Associate Counsellor with the Professional Association of Christian Counsellors & Psychotherapists (PACCP).
