Post-Masters Certificate in Counselling

The 12-credit Post-Masters Certificate in Counselling (PMCC) program allows individuals with a master's degree in counselling, applied psychology, or equivalent to develop additional expertise from courses we offer. To form their certificate program, learners select four courses from those offered in Counselling Psychology.

The PMCC program is designed for people who want to re-specialize in another area. You may be looking for a change of career direction or you may have taken a master's degree with a general focus and are looking for an opportunity to gain education and specialization in a particular area. You may also be missing courses required for licensure and want to roll them into the Post-Masters Certificate. All courses are offered online, so the entire program may be completed through online learning formats.

The PMCC may also be of interest to those with a master's degree in a human science field who wish to pick up a cluster of foundational counselling psychology theory and practice courses to round out their educational experience.
