Counselors assist people with personal, family, educational, mental health, substance abuse, and career issues so that they can lead healthier and more productive lives. Psychology majors interested in the helping professions may consider a concentration in counseling. Those not majoring in psychology can earn a minor in counseling.We understand that many of our graduates with a BA in psychology obtain pre-professional jobs within the helping professions. The concentration in counseling is designed to acquaint the student who is interested in a career in the helping professions with pre-professional-level counselor training.*
*The student is cautioned that graduate-level training is required before one can appropriately represent oneself as a professional counselor.
