Prepare to seek a career in professional counseling with the Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology. Choose from two specialization options, including psychology MFT and LPCC.
The MA Counseling Psychology MFT: If you’re committed to helping individuals, couples, families, adolescents, and children in psychotherapy this specialization emphasizes marriage and family therapy. It meets the academic requirements necessary to sit for the Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) License mandated by the Board of Behavioral Sciences in the state of California. It also will prepare you for doctoral studies in practitioner-oriented programs such as counseling or clinical psychology.
The MA Counseling Psychology LPCC: If you prefer individual and group counseling, this specialization emphasizes counseling techniques and theories, including those related to career development. It meets the academic requirements to be eligible for licensing as a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) by the Board of Behavioral Sciences in the state of California.
To complete both specializations, you must take the three track courses for each and complete the additional practicum hours required in order to meet the educational requirements for both licenses. The degree with either option may not meet requirements in other states. Students should consult the licensing boards of the appropriate states for information about licensure outside of California.
