A graduate degree or certificate can help you provide support for diverse populations in your community.
The online Master of Arts in Counseling program at the University of North Dakota is designed to guide your development as a knowledgeable practitioner who understands the importance of cultural sensitivity. Through a combination of online classroom learning and community-based counseling internships, you’ll gain knowledge about diagnostic, intervention and prevention strategies; risk assessment; human development; counseling ethics and theory; and other evidence-based best practices.
The master’s program allows you to specialize your career with four unique online tracks: K-12 School Counseling, Addiction Counseling, Community Mental Health Counseling or Rehabilitation Counseling. We also offer a post-graduate certificate in K-12 School Counseling online for those who have already earned their counseling master’s in another emphasis and wish to refocus their expertise.
Through this program, you can earn the knowledge and skills to:
- Be a culturally mindful and social justice-oriented practitioner.
- Fulfill the requirements for licensure in several states (for more information on state authorization and licensure, click here).
- Position yourself for a Ph.D., Psy.D. or other terminal degree.
UND students who are not enrolled in the online counseling master’s or post-graduate certificate programs are typically permitted to enroll in only one counseling course at the discretion of faculty.
