Geneva College

 

 

Overview

The Mental Health Counseling Program and the Marriage and Family Counseling Program are designed in accordance with national counselor certification and state licensure standards for the academic training of professional counselors. The School Counseling Program additionally prepares students to be certified in both elementary and secondary school counseling by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). Thus far 94 percent of Geneva College students have taken the National Counselor Exam. Ninety-nine percent of those students passed the comprehensive exam on the first sitting.

Students in all three MA in Counseling Programs take core courses on human development, faith-based counseling foundations, career development, assessment, research design and program evaluation, professional issues and ethics, multicultural awareness, counseling theory, and group work as well as training in helping skills.  All students are required to participate in a 10-hour group laboratory designed to train group facilitators. Each student receives intense individual and group clinical supervision during practicum and 600 hour internship. Recent graduates of the programs have found employment in a variety of work settings including schools, clinics, church counseling centers, and public and private agencies.

The MA in Counseling Programs at Geneva College welcome both full-time and part-time students. The MA in Counseling degree can be completed in 20 months by students who wish to attend full-time.  During the first year, required classes are taught on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings, making the program convenient to students who travel a distance. Part-time students may wish to schedule classes only on Tuesdays, only on Thursdays, only evenings, or only afternoon hours.  During the second year, full-time students complete supervised practicum and internship course credits. Some more advanced elective and specialization courses are offered in an intensive format. Geneva College's MA in Counseling courses are not offered online.
