La Salle University offers Master of Arts degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy, Professional Clinical Counseling, and Industrial/Organizational Psychology.
La Salle’s COAMFTE-accredited Marriage and Family degree trains students to evaluate and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders and a wide array of relationship issues within the context of the individual and/or the family system. It prepares students for licensed employment in a variety of clinical settings including private practice. Students may select a minor in Professional Clinical Counseling or Addictions Counseling.
The M.A. in Professional Clinical Counseling grounds students in counseling theory, and provides training in assessment and treatment to prepare students to become licensed professional counselors in mental health and related settings, including private practice. Education and training is oriented toward the adoption of a client-centered, rather than an illness-centered approach.
The M.A. in Industrial Organizational Psychology prepares students for this growing field and a bright future in the academic and business worlds. This I/O program is a collaboration between the fields of psychology and business and provides an excellent graduate option for those applying from either a psychology or business undergraduate major.
Students can attend on either a full-time or a part-time basis for the Marriage and Family Therapy Program or the Professional Clinical Counseling Program. Students are able to take courses at any of La Salle’s three campuses: Main Campus in Philadelphia, PA; Bucks County Center in Newtown, PA; or at the Montgomery County Center in Plymouth Meeting, PA.
Acceptance into the MFT and PCC program occurs in Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
Industrial/Organizational Psychology degree is only offered at the Main Campus. Students are able to take two or three courses a semester, and acceptance into this program is only in the Fall semester.
La Salle’s M.A. degrees provide an excellent background for students preparing for doctoral study.
