Overview

Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology

The aim of the MA in Counselling Psychology - Project concentration (non-thesis) is to produce graduates with introductory academic preparation for research or clinical careers in counselling psychology.

Training is provided in the research domain through coursework in data analysis and a research project. 

Clinical preparation is initiated in the program through coursework in ethics, intervention, assessment, psychological testing, and multicultural issues, and through a practicum.

The MA Project concentration program produces graduates who are trained in the major academic areas of counselling psychology and have sufficient research ability to evaluate and conduct research in counselling. 

This program provides them with the foundation for doctoral studies that have an emphasis on research.

This degree is typically completed in four semesters over two years.

The degree alone does not fulfill the requirements of the Quebec Professional Order of Guidance Counsellors (OCCOQ) or the Quebec Order of Psychologists (OPQ). 

Graduates of this program will need a supplementary internship experience if they wish to fulfill the requirements for membership in the OCCOQ. 

Students are admitted to an internship only with the approval of the program and contingent on the availability of supervisory staff.
