Counseling Programs

Within the counseling field either a graduate degree is required, or a student can train to become an assistant to a professional in the industry. Master’s and doctorate’s degrees in counseling allow a psychology major to become a licensed counselor, supervisor, or teacher in the field of psychology. Also, it is beneficial for a student with experience in mental health, school counseling, or social work fields to pursue a graduate degree in counseling in order to advance their career. There are also certificates available to train students on how to assist a practicing counselor.
