Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology


Apply Now!The University of Saint Mary Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology program curriculum directly aligns with state licensure requirements for both Kansas and Missouri — something many larger universities in the Kansas City area are unable to claim.

USM’s all-Ph.D. faculty offer one-on-one attention and advanced insight in the behavioral sciences. Students have the opportunity to train alongside professionals at premier mental health providers specializing in adult, children, veterans, private practice, and hospital services.

“Many schools leave it to the students and have no formal list of approved practicum sites. USM looks out for the quality of education — not just signing a student up and letting them be on their own.

Saint Mary is also one of the few folks who talks with their students about licensing issues in both states. Most students have to rely on their own research for insight.

We are proud to be affiliated with USM's program.”
