Counselling ( Masters )
The Master of Arts (MA) in Counselling Psychology (project-based or thesis-based) assist students in developing the knowledge, skills, and understanding necessary to work as professional counsellors in a wide variety of settings. Our programs are characterized by small classes, ongoing contact with a program supervisor, and a focus on the practicum/internship component of counsellor preparation. Students may focus on one or more of the following areas: trauma, school/higher education counselling, Aboriginal counselling, addictions and diversity. In addition to our on-campus project-based MA program, we offer master's programs in community-based counselling format. These programs offer alternative locations and varied modes of delivery to meet the diverse needs of our students.

What is co-op?
Co-operative education (co-op) is a learning strategy that lets you:
- alternate your academic studies with paid, relevant work experience in your field of study
- enrich your academic studies by drawing on practical, real-world experience from your work terms
- develop competencies to excel in the workplace
- potentially pursue work terms related to your graduate research or project
Can you do co-op?
Graduate co-op may be available to students who are pursuing thesis and non-thesis (or professional) degrees. Participation is optional, and admission is determined after consultation with your graduate adviser and department. Contact the co-op program in your degree area for details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Co-op is not open to one-year graduate degrees, graduate certificates and diplomas, and non-degree graduate students.
