The Master of Christian Psychology and Counseling Program Curriculum
The purpose of the Master of Christian Psychology and Counselling Program (PsyC.M) program is to provide the candidate with and advanced competencies and psychology and counselling insights through the preparation and case studies for those actively involved in professional and vocational of Biblical/Christian Counselling and Psychology. Cornerstone focuses on the practical knowledge and understanding rather the actual degree itself. For this purpose, CCU’s requirements and standards are higher than most peer schools without any additional work or cost the student.
The Master of Christian Psychology and Counselling Program is designed for candidates who have either a Bachelor or a Master in any biblical studies. Those candidates who don’t have a prior degree or lack of biblical foundation will be required to take some additional biblical foundational courses to substantiate the lacking. If the lacking is minimal, we’ll do our best to incorporate some require courses to fill any deficiency.
From the start of your first course up to your graduation you’ll know your interest, perception, and desire are biblically challenged and intellectually stimulated; and you’ll be humbly proud of your Biblical, intellectual knowledge and of the calibre of such a highly respected two letter-DR. behind your name.
