Multicultural Community Counseling and Social Justice Education 

A Two-Year Master of Science Degree in Counseling, with a Concentration Licensed Professional Clinical Counseling (LPCC)

Welcome to the Community-Based Block (CBB) Program . We provide multicultural community counseling and social justice education that prepares students to become culturally competent licensed professional clinical counselors (LPCC), while serving individuals and communities through internships, research, placements and community engagement.

What is CBB?

For over 40 years, the CBB Program has prepared unlicensed counselors to work with individuals and communities. In Fall 2014, the one-year CBB Program became a two-year program that will prepare students to become Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC). The two-year block program meets all of the requirements for the 60-unit MASTER OF COUNSELING with a concentration in Multicultural Community Counseling and fulfills the California Board of Behavioral Sciences’ requirements for Professional Clinical Counselor Licensure.
