At each of our sites, in the Fall and Spring terms, courses are typically offered during two class periods: 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. Summer courses are also offered during convenient evening hours.
The La Salle Clinical Counseling Psychology Program in Montgomery County has been crafted to provide a sequential experience for each student. The progression in each instance is from knowledge base, to skill development, to application.
