Master of Arts in Counseling – Now Enrolling!

000130322In case you missed our press release about the new Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program, or the one about Dr. Elizabeth List, the Psychology department chair and faculty member directing the MAC program - we have the whole scoop here.

The long awaited Master of Arts in Counseling program is accepting applicants into the upcoming Fall Semester - and the response has been very positive!

4 Facts You Should Know:

  1. Fully Accredited:  Multnomah's MAC program is accredited by ABHE and NWCCU.
  2. Licensure:  Multnomah's MAC program meets the educational requirements for licensure and is approved by the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists based on the fact that Multnomah is a regionally accredited institution.
  3. Stronger Bible:  There are many MAC programs out there, but what makes the MU program unique is that Bible and theology is the foundation on which it is built. We are committed to Biblically-grounded counseling as a ministry - not just a profession.
  4. Accessible:  With classes taking place one night per week and small cohort-style groups forming throughout the year, it is an ideal program for busy professionals looking to get qualified for a career in counseling - especially Christian counseling.

We are looking to build an FAQ page to answer questions, so let us know what we should put on it! Also, I will be interviewing Dr. List in the coming weeks, so I will be sure to ask her your questions for you!

In the meantime, I hear that there are many applicants already - so if you want in, you probably should contact Admissions right away to find out how!
