BASTYR UNIVERSITY INTRODUCES MASTER OF ARTS IN COUNSELING PSYCHOLOGY Degree program set to begin in fall 2012 Kenmore, Wash. (December 13, 2011) – Bastyr University is pleased to announce it will add a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology degree program to its curriculum for fall 2012. “Our new program is different from most other counseling psychology programs in that it focuses on whole-person health — body, mind and spirit — allowing graduates the opportunity to find careers in private practice or integrative settings,” said Program Director Charles Smith, PhD. “Another difference is that our classes will be offered on weekends to accommodate both working professionals and traditional students who desire an alternate schedule.” Students who graduate with this degree from Bastyr University will be eligible for licensure as mental health counselors (LMHC). According to statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mental health jobs are expected to grow by 24 percent between now and 2018, indicating tremendous growth potential in this field and a strong need for qualified and licensed mental health professionals to get their training now. “This new master’s program is just the latest example of the growth of Bastyr University, which continues to add academic curricula that will help us achieve our mission,” said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. “2012 promises to be a wonderful year for our institution as we open a new campus in San Diego and secure our place as the nation’s leader in natural health arts and sciences.” The Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology program is set to begin next fall with plans to accept approximately 10 students in the inaugural class.
