Practical application lies at the heart of our advanced Counseling programs. Small class sizes taught by experienced faculty in the evenings allow students to progress through the program either part-time or full-time.


All students put their coursework to the test in supervised internships, while our emphasis on experiential learning, social justice and multicultural perspectives sets the programs apart.
