The Division of Social Sciences and Humanities includes the Associate of Arts (AA) undergraduate degree and the Master of Arts Counseling degree. The AA degree includes courses that are used by other degrees to meet core requirements and serve as electives. In addition to serving General Education requirements, a Psychology undergraduate minor is offered.
The Master of Arts Counseling (MAC) degree prepares students to be professional counselors. The MAC program at Colorado Christian University combines rigorous coursework, experiential learning, and mentoring relationships into a comprehensive graduate educational experience. What sets the CCU program apart is the Christian framework that encompasses every aspect and promotes study of the whole person, including the spiritual dimension. In addition to counseling courses, students are given the unique opportunity to take Bible classes that explore the relationship between faith and psychology.
The MAC program equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become influential and effective licensed professional counselors. Throughout the program, students are challenged to take what they learn in the classroom and on field experiences and use it to make an impact in their communities, churches, and families. Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared to take the Colorado Licensure Exam.
The MAC program is currently involved in a self-study which will lead to application to a national accrediting board.
