This program is created for those professionals who may have their undergraduate degree in other fields; our students often include teachers, counselors, health care workers, and various other professionals. The program is designed as a part-time program for working professionals to complete within three years. Students are able to take courses online, two at a time. Average completion time is 3 years, and two internships are required.
