EARN AN MASTER’S IN COUNSELING AND HELP THOSE IN CRISIS

This degree program will be closing in 2018.

Our MS in Counseling will train you to help people dealing with substance abuse, loss, and grief.

This master’s program allows you to select from two dedicated paths: substance abuse and trauma and loss. Our program’s substance abuse track prepares students to build successful careers in a field for which the need for well-trained counselors is firmly established. Completion of the curriculum allows graduates to apply for CASAC (Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor) certification in New York State. Our program’s trauma and loss track prepares students to work with such individuals as the chronically and terminally ill and with their families and survivors.

The program also provides foundational credits for students considering careers in such fields as HR or for those who wish to move on to a doctoral program other than counseling. Students enrolled in the 36-credit program can switch to the 60-credit program in Mental Health Counseling if they meet the academic requirements.
