The comprehensive University Certificate program consists of three core courses, six required courses and one elective course, and two practical courses. The three core courses precede the other courses and build a strong theoretical foundation and understanding of the counseling theories and their applications. The six required courses will further enhance learning of specific topics and supportive theories. Case studies and practical exercises in courses make this program a very practical and enjoyable learning experience. The last component of the program is internship and practicum courses. These are designed to provide the students with clinical experience.
