Palo Alto University’s M.A. in Counseling program prepares students to serve their communities as licensed mental health professionals (MFT or LPCC). This master's in counseling degree can be the keystone to expand career options or retool a career in a profession that makes a difference to the community.

With online or on-campus options and evening class scheduling, the program offers maximum flexibility to students who want to pursue graduate studies without needing to relocate.

This program offers two areas of emphasis, both leading to licensure:

  • The Clinical Mental Health emphasis is for those seeking LPCC or similar counseling licensure in many states and countries with no relocation necessary to complete the degree.

This program focuses on developing and strengthening skills in four core areas: assessment, intervention/psychotherapy, research/critical thinking, and ethics/professional practice.
