Our 63 unit degree prepares its graduates for a career as a counselor or psychotherapist. Students will gain theoretical and applied knowledge of the counseling field through classroom learning and supervised field placement experience. Graduating students are prepared to apply for licensure by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) as Marriage and Family Therapists (MFT) and as Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC). Those who wish to be licensed as an LPCC will need to take an additional class, offered by the program, in Career Counseling. Students are taught information current to the practice of counseling and psychotherapy, as we continually update our program to meet the requirements set by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) and to remain current in the field.
Students may also obtain a certificate in Trauma Theory and Treatment. If interested, please ask your advisor about this option.
Designed for the working adult, all classes are offered late afternoons and evenings Mondays through Thursdays. Some Saturday classes are required.
