Public Health / Counseling

About the Dual Degree in Public Health (M.P.H.) and Counseling (M.A.C.)

This dual degree will enable practitioners to implement both individual and systemic change in the mental health and public health fields, by integrating the tools of the counselor with the tools of public health.

The Master of Public Health Degree educates community public health professionals to promote the health of individuals, families, communities, and the environment. This is accomplished through a program that integrates education, research, and practice in a global environment.

The Master in Counseling educates and socializes students to become practitioners skilled in the art of behavior assessment and change. The program integrates theory and practice (both within and outside of the classroom) from the beginning of the program. The Master of Arts in Counseling allows students to become licensed as professional counselors in Pennsylvania.

Part-time and full-time options are available. Some courses are offered online.

The M.P.H. program is accredited by the Council for Education in Public Health (CEPH). The Counseling program is accredited by the Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC).
