Psychology (BS) - 3+3 Pre-Counseling


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The Psychology program offers a Pre-Counseling 3+3 option for students interested in a career in Mental Health Counseling.  Undergraduate students work with their academic advisor to complete courses needed to fulfill the requirements for both a Bachelor of Science degree and the entrance requirements for either of two Master of Arts programs: Clinical Mental Health Counseling or Student Affairs in Higher Education with College Counseling.  Graduate study in both of these programs prepares students for licensure as a Professional Counselor.  The Psychology program prepares students for graduate study by providing a strong basis in the biopsychosocial processes of human functioning.  The first year of the Master of Arts program meets the requirements for the fourth year of the Bachelor of Science degree.
