Community-based programs

The Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies Department currently offers community-based Masters degree programs in Counselling to cohorts of professionals in education and other fields.

Programs can be initiated as a result of local needs communicated to the Faculty of Education by interested individuals. They provide a wonderful opportunity for learning and advancing careers in a supportive environment of colleagues with similar and diverse backgrounds.

For information about admission to this program, refer to the Counselling Psychology Admissions Guide.

For information about admission to the Aboriginal Communities Counselling Program (ACCP), refer to the Aboriginal Communities Counselling Admissions Guide

Delivery method

Delivery methodsWe anticipate offering a new community-based counselling program every summer, starting either in May (Mid-Island) OR July (3 Summers).This is subject to enrollment. If you wish to receive an email when it is time to apply to either program, email Ione Wagner and ask to be added to the interest list. Please do not apply before receiving the email. The application deadline will be provided at that time. Delivery formats and program lengths vary:

A) Mid-Island: The Mid-Island program requires two summers at UVic and weekend courses, once a month in Parksville during the winter.

B) 3 Summers: The 3 Summers program requires three consecutive summers on campus at the university.

*Note: In both cases, students will work on their internships and projects in their home community over the winter months.
