Post-Masters Certificate in Counselling Specializations

The Post-Masters Certificate in Counselling program offers specializations in:

Counselling Psychology Specialization

The courses in the Counselling Psychology specialization reflect the graduate course requirements for licensing with the College of Alberta Psychologists. Students in the Post-Masters Certificate in Counselling (PMCC) may seek to complete additional courses for certification or licensure, which were not included in their master's degree. Students are encouraged to check course and program requirements with their provincial regulatory body in the province where they plan to practice. The PMCC may also be of interest to those with a master's degree in a human services field who wish to pick up a cluster of foundational counselling psychology theory and practice courses to round out their educational experience.
