The Master of Science in Clinical Professional Counseling program prepares students to begin employment in psychology under the supervision of a doctoral-level licensed psychologist or to continue their education leading to the Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) or a doctoral degree (Psy.D. or Ph.D.). All incoming masters students must complete and pass a background check prior to enrollment. The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) provides students possessing a master's degree in psychology or an allied field advanced training in specialized areas of clinical or counseling psychology. The Masters Plus program is set up for students who already have their master's degree in psychology and need the additional course work to sit for the State licensure exam.
