The Bachelor of Science in Counseling Psychology degree completion program is designed for adults pursuing a career in a mental health field. Most students who complete this program will choose to continue on to graduate school for further training toward licensure as a psychologist, psychotherapist, professional counselor, or social worker. Although this program meets the preparatory needs of most graduate schools, students should consult the graduate school of their choice for specific requirements.
