Help others as a professional counselor

counseling program in Oregon

George Fox’s Master of Arts in Counseling Program prepares students to work with clients of all ages, either individually or in groups. Our graduates work in a variety of settings – including private, institutional, community, Christian and cross-cultural – and find employment in profit and nonprofit organizations, hospitals and private practice.

Graduates are prepared to sit for the national licensure exam to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon. Our curriculum is shaped by a commitment to an integrated understanding of the Christian faith and mental health.

Our objective is for students to:

  • Understand persons as having physiological, psychological, relational and spiritual needs
  • Understand and articulate the core dynamics of counseling in concert with sound theological principles
  • Acquire, refine and demonstrate appropriate psychotherapeutic skills used in working with individuals and groups

What our program offers:

  • Courses taught from a systemic perspective
  • Opportunities to interact with students who are pursuing other mental health professions
  • An environment that encourages the integration of faith and learning
  • Full time, accessible, widely trained faculty
  • Flexible schedules that work for adults
  • Two-, three-, and four-year program options
  • Convenient Portland Center and Salem Center locations

The program is generally two to four years in length with 56 semester hours of course work required as a minimum for graduation.
