Within the College of Leadership and Social Change, the Psychology and Counseling department offers masters-level degree and certificate programs, as well as a doctoral-level PsyD in Counseling Psychology program.
The Master of Science in Professional Counseling (MSPC) program is designed for those seeking careers in mental health-related fields with children, adults, and families across a wide-array of settings including schools, hospitals, correctional facilities, and community mental health agencies. You may choose an Adult-Generalist, a Child and Family, Trauma-Informed, or an Addictions Counseling track of study.
At the completion of the 60-credit MSPC program, you will be eligible to obtain your licensure in professional counseling (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania after additional supervised experience in the field. A 48-credit program is also available for those not pursuing licensure.
The Psy.D. in Counseling Psychology at Carlow University is one of only three APA-accredited counseling psychology doctoral programs with a social justice focus. The program is dedicated to:
- Training psychologists who are able to identify sociopolitical structures that perpetuate injustice related to individual and group differences.
- Training practitioners who are sensitive to the needs of underserved populations and who possess knowledge and skills relevant to human diversity.
