Moving with courage and compassion
It’s time to be the ‘you’ that our world needs. As a student at APU, you will receive hands on training for the 3rd fastest growing profession in America – Counseling.
Classes are dynamic and participatory, taking place outside of a formal classroom as often as inside. Students may find themselves hiking in the Chugach Mountains to investigate the relationship between nature and psychology or working in a village in Africa to personalize the meaning of service.
At APU, we emphasize positive psychology, applied learning, and take a wellness and strengths-based approach to counseling and the helping fields. With individualized attention from a dedicated faculty, our life-friendly degree programs prepare students from the bachelor’s to the doctoral level for dynamic counseling careers.
Courses are offered in a variety of formats and delivery methods across all our Counseling Psychology degree programs. At the undergraduate level, courses are offered during the day and in the evenings, on-campus and online. At the graduate and doctoral level, our courses are offered online in the evenings with on-campus intensives every six weeks. Our degrees prepare you to work on the challenges and changes you desire to see in your community and in the world.
