Minor in Counseling & Social Change

csc_students_phillip.jpg

This new minor, offered through the Department of Counseling and School Psychology (CSP), builds on CSP’s commitment to facilitating individual, group and systems change in diverse social contexts. The minor introduces students to skills and concepts used to understand and create such change, and to professional career paths such as school and community counseling, clinical psychology, social work, family therapy, and school psychology. It provides immersion in theory and experience-based practice.
