What makes our program different?
Welcome to the Mount St. Mary's College, Los Angeles, Master of Science Degree in Counseling Psychology. Our degree program offers three specializations. The Marriage & Family Therapy Specialization is 60 units and prepares you for licensure in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). The program meets academic requirements for those who seek the California Marriage and Family Therapy License. As you complete your fieldwork classes at the end of your program of study you will find that the Mount St. Mary’s College, Los Angeles, MFT Program has an excellent reputation with local clinical sites and that you will be well prepared for the next phase of your career. Also available is the ¡Enlaces! Certificate, which is earned concurrently with the MFT specialization and focuses on counseling the Spanish speaking client.
In Fall 2010 we introduced two new specializations. The first is in Mental Health Administration. The Mental Health Administration Specialization is designed for individuals who are already in the nonprofit and/or mental health sector and wish to advance their knowledge and career options by taking on greater leadership and administrative roles.
Our second new specialization is in General Psychology Specialization. This 36 unit program explores counseling theories and topics, but does not have a field work requirement (and therefore does not prepare students for professional licensure). This specialization is designed for students who wish to earn a master’s degree in this fascinating field, but are not interested in becoming licensed therapists.
You can be a part of these exciting Mount St. Mary’s College, Los Angeles, Graduate Psychology Programs designed for the working professional. Students who are admitted into the Graduate Psychology Department can expect to be welcomed into a tight-knit community of knowledgeable educators dedicated to excellence in teaching. A diverse student body helps round out the learning experience by providing a variety of world-views and cultural perspectives.
