The Department of Psychology’s certificate program will allow students to obtain the additional post-master’s credit hours needed to fulfill the Pennsylvania state 60-credit educational requirement to be licensed as a professional counselor. The program is tailored to individual students based on their prior course work at the master’s level and their interests. The admissions process includes the development of an individualized, planned course of study designed to allow students to complete course work in areas necessary to be eligible for Pennsylvania licensure as a professional counselor. Students, in consultation with program advisers, will select courses from the current graduate offerings in the Department of Psychology. Courses will be selected by examining students’ master’s degree programs and determining areas of need, based on the following licensing content areas:

• Human Growth and Development: studies that provide an understanding of the nature and needs of individuals at all developmental stages.
• Social and Cultural Foundations: studies that provide an understanding of issues and trends in a multicultural and diverse society.
• Helping Relationships: studies that provide an understanding of counseling and consultation processes.
• Group Work: studies that provide an understanding of group development, dynamics, counseling theories, group counseling methods and skills, and other group approaches.
• Career and Lifestyle Development: studies that provide an understanding of career development and related life factors.

The supervised internship experience shall begin after completion of the supervised practicum experience. (Note: These practicum and internship hours are in addition to the 3,600 hours of supervised postmaster’s professional counseling practice experience that the board also requires.)

Note: The Department of Psychology at West Chester University has no role in the administration or awarding of the licensure of professional counselors. Each student is responsible for ensuring that he or she has met all of the state’s licensure eligibility requirements.

As our planet faces unprecedented environmental, social, and economic crises, we are all being challenged to make dramatic changes not only in our knowledge and values, but also in our culture and institutions. Read more
As our planet faces unprecedented environmental, social, and economic crises, we are all being challenged to make dramatic changes not only in our knowledge and values, but also in our culture and institutions. Education For Sustainability responds to this challenge.

"We learn what we live"

Education For Sustainability (EFS) is a rapidly emerging field that is guided by a vision of a sustainable society and rooted in a simple truth: we learn what we live. EFS practitioners are trained professionals who understand the challenge of sustainability and who have been prepared to teach others, to catalyze institutional and cultural change, and to model sustainable ways of living.

Many EFS practitioners work in K-12 schools where they integrate sustainability content into curricula, lead efforts to "green" buildings and grounds, and raise critical questions about the purposes of education on a planet with limits. EFS practitioners also work in:
-Colleges and Universities
-Corporations
-Nonprofits
-Community-Based Organizations
-Religious Institutions

"Be the change"

EFS practitioners are people who strive to "be the change" and embody the conviction that "human development is primarily about being more, not having more." Given accelerating regional, national, and global attention to sustainability, the demand for EFS practitioners is expected to grow dramatically. Indeed, the challenge of sustainability may spark the most creative period in human history. Whether you work in a classroom, a community organization, or the offices of a business, you are invited to join this great work of sustainability as an EFS practitioner.

The goal of the new Educational Technology Certificate (18 credits) is to support professional educators with technology that connects them to data, content, resources, expertise and learning experiences that empower and inspire them to provide more effective learning for all learners.

Course Delivery

West Chester University's Online GIS Certificate courses are primarily taught asynchronously with students required to meet certain learning, assess and other requirements in a stated time period. Online courses do not meet in a classroom, but students have an option to enroll in classroom-based courses if desired.

WCU delivers its Online GIS Certificate through Desire2Learn (D2L) online courseware. Using D2L, professors teaching online courses have many options for delivering course material including video, voiceover presentations and readings, and many options for assignments including discussion forums, blog postings, file uploads and online testing.

While most of the course requirements can be completed in your own time, in some cases professors may assign assignments or activities that may require students to be available at certain times.

Philosophy may sound dauntingly remote from our daily concerns, but its basic questions "What can I know? What may I hope? What must I do?" actually pose themselves throughout any thinking person's journey. Read more
Philosophy may sound dauntingly remote from our daily concerns, but its basic questions "What can I know? What may I hope? What must I do?" actually pose themselves throughout any thinking person's journey. And the skills it teaches — close reading, careful thinking, and the critique of ideas — apply to most areas of human endeavour. A background in philosophy is thus excellent training for many careers, and matchless preparation for life itself.

The graduate Certificate in Healthcare Ethics, which requires no previous background in philosophy, offers training in moral reasoning within the medical setting for those with undergraduate degrees who meet the graduate school’s and department’s entrance requirements. Students will develop skills in seeing, analysing, and resolving problems in the healthcare field. The certificate can be completed in three semesters.

Curriculum

Core modules:

• PHI 502 History of Western Ethics
• PHI 570 Bioethics

Focused Electives (choose three):

• HEA 500 DISEASES
• HEA 501 Integrative Health
• HEA 512 Challenge of HIV/AIDS: ISS-IMP-PREV-CONT
