Why earn your M.S. in Counseling Psychology (Online) at CBU?
Qualify for licensure
The M.S. in Counseling Psychology program aligns with the degree and coursework requirements
for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) in the state of California,
and as a Professional Clinical Counselor (PCC), for those students who complete the
course sequence, as set forth by California’s Board of Behavioral Sciences.
*If you are planning to seek a professional license or certification in a state other
than California, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate state
licensing agency to determine all of the educational and other requirements for licensure
or certification, before enrolling in a CBU program.
Integrate theory and faith
Faculty teach from a biblically rooted perspective, enabling students to become compassionate
and ethical therapists dedicated to promoting their client’s quality of life. Faculty
encourage students to incorporate Christian beliefs and values as well as to explore
the intersection between their personal and professional lives.
Apply foundational knowledge to clinical practice
Students are given the opportunity to put theory into practice in real-world clinical
settings through the completion of a required practicum experience. The counseling
psychology program maintains over 100 well-established organizational relationships
with a diverse range of clinical settings, including community mental health, school-based,
