Equipping You to Engage MA in Counseling from a Christian Worldview

Western Seminary's Master of Arts in Counseling program prepares counselors to care for the whole person in the populations they serve. This program offers skill-based coursework, internship experience, as well as a requirement to complete your own personal counseling. Since this program is offered at a seminary, it also unites biblical and theological studies in order to connect both Christian worldview and compassion to the counseling profession.

"I am so incredibly grateful to have been in a place where faculty members cared enough for me to help me process through my theological hang ups, ministry questions, and even my personal issues. It was so exciting for me to have access to these amazing, Godly people who possess a wealth of wisdom and experience."Aaron Truong / Vancouver, WashingtonTherapist at Columbia River Mental Health Services

"I came to Western asking a lot of questions about suffering and grief. What you end up learning is that you aren’t the one who gives all the answers to people in pain. Instead, you walk with them and let Jesus do the transformation.”Lisa Ramsey / KosovoInternational Counselor, CAMA
