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. Our degrees prepare you to work on the challenges and changes you desire to see in your community and in the world.
