Masters in Community Counseling

Getting Started

Students with any bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university are eligible for entry into the program. There are three mandatory prerequisite courses: Introduction to Psychology, Psychopathology, and a course in Statistics or Quantitative Methods of Research, which students must complete prior to beginning coursework. A graduate school entrance examination, preferably the Millers Analogies Test (MAT), is required. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is also acceptable.

The Master of Arts in Community Counseling program matriculates students during the fall term of each academic year. The program curriculum rotates on a three-year cycle, and classes are designed to build on previous coursework. Coursework begins by enrolling in Introduction to Counseling (MCC 500). Students wishing to begin classes prior to the fall term are permitted to take the interdisciplinary core course Moral Leadership (COR 500) during the spring and/or summer terms. Otherwise, students are expected to follow the recommended course sequence, or they may encounter delays in future course selection or practicum and internship assignments.

The capstone internship course is required and provides students with the opportunity to practice professional counseling with the support and supervision of on-site supervisors and Alvernia University faculty.
