Learn to facilitate healthy personal and interpersonal relationships across the lifespan, working with couples, families, groups and individuals.
This master’s degree equips students with the tools needed to become multiculturally competent counselors in diverse settings. Skills in multicultural competence and cultural awareness are woven into every course. The Counseling Psychology MEd at Temple University was also one of the first programs in the country to require students to take a multicultural counseling course in order to graduate.
Small classes foster direct, collaborative relationships with instructors and classmates. Clinical courses in particular are limited to 15 students. The Counseling Psychology MEd provides ample opportunities for intensive, hands-on training, culminating in a year-long practicum and internship experience. Experiential components are also integrated into most courses.
In addition, the program strongly believes that in order to be an effective counselor it is necessary for students to know themselves—that is, to understand their own strengths and areas for potential growth. Because counseling is an interpersonal process with considerable influence and power, the program evaluates each student continuously for their development of mature, ethical and professional behavior.
