Course detail

The twelve course Master of Counselling program is completed over three years. The program prepares individuals to function effectively as Canadian Certified Counsellors or Registered Psychologists in a wide range of work environments.

With the completion of the appropriate courses, graduates may be eligible for certification as a Canadian Certified Counsellor under the guidelines of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). CCPA certification attests to the level of professional counselling competence and is considered the minimum professional standard in Canada.

Students who wish to become a Registered Psychologist should be aware that in Alberta, the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP) regulates the process of registering. The CAP has additional requirements beyond what is provided within the M.C. program at the University of Lethbridge, including undergraduate psychology courses, supervised clinical hours, and oral and written examinations. Students are responsible for ensuring that they meet the requirements for registering as established by the College of Alberta Psychologists or the corresponding body in the province/state in which they wish to achieve a professional designation.
