Cooperative Master of Arts in Counseling with Ottawa University

Home » Academics » Cooperative Master of Arts in Counseling with Ottawa University

Phoenix Seminary offers a cooperative program with Ottawa University and their Master of Arts in Counseling. The cooperative program is designed to equip students for a professional vocation as licensed counselors. This may include employment in a range of settings including churches, parachurch ministries and inpatient, outpatient and in-home mental health agencies. It can also provide the academic foundation for doctoral training.

This cooperative agreement allows students to enroll in the 34-hour Graduate Diploma in Christian Counseling at Phoenix Seminary and transfer up to 24 of those hours into the 60-hour Master of Arts in Counseling (Christian Specialty) at Ottawa University. Students must apply to and be simultaneously but separately admitted to both the Ottawa University and Phoenix Seminary programs.

Upon successful completion of all requirements of each school, graduates will be awarded the Ottawa University Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC), the Ottawa University Certificate of Graduate Studies Concentration and the Phoenix Seminary Graduate Diploma in Christian Counseling. With additional course work graduates may pursue a Master of Divinity degree from Phoenix Seminary.
