Required Courses

The required courses for the low-residency MA in Psychology and Clinical Mental Health Counseling Programs are meant to define the foundational minimum that each student will acquire in the required study areas. In addition to this foundation, each student brings issues of their own interests and passions to each course.  Each degree program has its own requirements and the respective addenda should be read to understand them.   View Complete List of Required Courses for Psychology or CMHC.

Courses required for each degree reflect not only the philosophy of the program faculty, but also the common requirements of licensing states and those national organizations of interest to Master’s level therapists (e.g., CAMPP, NBCC, and CACREP).
