The online Master of Arts in Counseling degree at Westminster Theological Seminary  is designed to prepare biblical counselors to work with individuals and families in a variety of counseling settings, such as church ministries, pastoral care ministries, counseling centers, or more informal mentoring partnerships. Become equipped to walk alongside others with love and wisdom.


Counseling Program Design

In an online community of peers and professors, you will begin studies across topics including introductions to biblical studies, growth and change in the Christian life, counseling models and process, and more. Westminster Theological Seminary courses consist of lectures and readings, regular small-group discussions, and assignments designed to grow you in life and ministry.

You will continue learning as you move into advanced topics that apply earlier classes and concepts to more complex issues in theology, ministry, and counseling. Deepen your relationships with your peer community and practice applying the principles of biblical counseling in your local ministry. You will also gain more practical experience in real-world ministry under the guidance of a mentor in your local area.
