Master of Arts in Counseling

The counseling profession helps people to become self-aware, growth-oriented and effective in mastering the challenges of life. Counselors — as skilled, perceptive, broadly educated professionals — assist clients in identifying areas for improvement and in carrying out changes that promote life fulfillment. Drawing upon a foundation of research and theory in philosophy, psychology and education, counselors use therapeutic skills and consultation techniques with both individuals and groups. In any setting, the goal of counseling is to help people expand their potential, facilitate development and live more satisfying and productive lives.

In order to prepare students for this difficult task, the master’s degree program in counseling at Oakland University sets forth a 48-credit curriculum designed to foster both personal development and the acquisition of a broad range of knowledge and skills.

Initial courses introduce the theoretical and professional components of the field. Later courses emphasize research and clinical skills. Finally, students are supervised intensively as they apply their knowledge and skills in courses that use on-campus laboratory facilities and approved field training sites. Students select an emphasis in either community/agency or school counseling.
