You've always had compassion for those in need. In everything you do, you strive to make a difference. Whether you're currently working in a helping profession, or are interested in pursuing a career in one, you may need additional college-level or graduate coursework to help you continue to impact the lives of others.
Gain a deeper understanding of the human condition. Depending on your professional or personal goals, select individual courses in counseling, human services or psychology to develop the essential skills you need to guide, counsel and serve others who are struggling with life's many challenges. Even when you enroll in just one course, you'll be joining the University's community of professionals who understand human dilemmas and concerns, and who have the desire and disposition to help others in conflict.
Counseling, human services and psychology courses include:
- Real-world instruction from faculty members who average 15.5 years of professional experience — some with titles such as clinical director, psychologist and behavioral therapist
- Online courses with frequent start dates that allow you to take courses in a way that fits your schedule
- Courses that can be completed in as few as five to six weeks
- Courses that may also be offered on campus, where available
