Gain the practical experience, the professional network and the education you need to apply for the Licensed Professional Counselor credential in Alaska.
The Counseling Psychology program of the Alaska Pacific University is a wellness and skills-based degree program grounded in a strength-based approach to psychology. Whether you’re already a practitioner in a mental health field seeking career advancement, a professional outside the field wanting to change careers, or a recent graduate of a bachelor’s program in psychology or a related field, close mentoring by experienced program faculty and a close-knit cohort for your learning community provide the support you need throughout your program to pursue your individual interests and achieve your personal goals.
MSCP coursework is delivered through synchronous online, evening classes and on-campus intensives every six weeks during the semester. Our online courses provide time for material delivery and discussion while the on-campus intensives offer the opportunity for students to practice skills in person, in preparation for internship placement.
