Graduate Counseling Admissions

Our graduate programs in counseling, marriage and family therapy, school counseling, and school psychology prepare you to excel as a licensed counselor or therapist. Flexible class times and course loads let you achieve your degree on your terms. Rigorous academics, spiritual guidance, and practical experience combine to allow you to enter the helping professions with a confidence firmly based in knowledge and faith.

Fitting School to Your Schedule

You've got a lot on your plate. Earn your master's degree through our open program structure that adapts to your full lifestyle. Take a single class as an intro to the field, or push to complete the full program in two years. Opt for a more relaxed three-year plan, or take the long view and combine studies with full-time employment over a longer period. This truly is higher learning that allows your life, your goals, and God's purpose for you to unfold while you succeed.

Most classes meet just once a week. Choose from fall, spring, and summer sectional scheduling, either all day, evenings, weekends or a combination of times, whatever fits your schedule. At George Fox, you'll enjoy challenging, fulfilling academics at a pace you can live with.

Working Internships

Which aspect of counseling are you drawn to: Child development? Adult therapy? Couples counseling? George Fox internships help you find your niche. We sustain relationships with community providers to ensure worthwhile intern experiences, and we tie field work to a final clinical project that is the capstone of both programs. Practice in a setting that reflects your professional interests, or explore new avenues. Gain "real-world" skills and make contacts that may lead to your first job in the field.
