Through an agreement with Ambrose Seminary in Calgary, we offer our students the opportunity to complete the Master of Arts in Counselling degree program in Alberta. Students complete most of their counselling courses through a series of one week modules, semester long courses, and online. Bible and Theology courses are taken directly through Ambrose Seminary or through online courses provided by Providence Seminary. 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 meets the requirements to be an Associate Counsellor with the Professional Association of Canadian Christian Counsellors (PACCC).
M.A. Counselling Psychology
The Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology program is a distance education program that offers an additional year of focused study that deepens one's knowledge and therapeutic intervention skills. Students will complete their third year course work in modular courses offered in either Calgary or Otterburne and through online courses. These specialized courses include Psychology of Emotion, Psychopharmacology, Family Systems, Child and Adolescent Counselling, Gerontology, and Addictions. Counsellor training at Providence Seminary integrates the Christian worldview with best practices in the field of counselling psychology. The MA in Counselling Psychology meets the requirements to be an Associate Counsellor with the Professional Association of Canadian Christian Counsellors (PACCC), and fulfills the academic requirements of the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP).
The counselling courses are presented in modular format by the counselling faculty of Providence at the Ambrose Seminary campus in Calgary. Students also have the option to complete some courses online. Dr. Rodolfo Nolasco, Dr. Sharon Habermann and Prof. Rob MacDonald are the resident Providence professors in Calgary. To complete the non-counselling courses within this program you can either take online courses at Providence Seminary or take these at Ambrose Seminary.
A major component of the program is a sequence of four practica where students are involved in hypothetical and actual counselling situations. These are offered during the regular semester.
Payment must be made at Providence Theological Seminary on or before the first day of class. Payment can be made securely on-line or by calling the Business Office at 1-800-668-7768, ext. 226.
