About Our Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology (MACP) Program
Our mission is to prepare you to become a licensed professional counselor or licensed psychology associate. The MACP program will prepare you to serve the mental health needs of communities and individuals from diverse backgrounds. You will also learn to use preventative strategies to promote mental health while responding sensitively to the special life issues in border communities.
Why Should You Come Here?
The MACP program at TAMIU offers a wonderful opportunity to work with Spanish-speaking populations given our geographical location as a border city with Mexico. Most of our faculty members are bilingual and we offer specialized training for those interested in obtaining a bilingual (Spanish-English) counselor certificate that includes terminology and applied training in Spanish. We are currently offering experiences to study abroad and practice your skills with diverse Spanish-speaking populations. In addition, TAMIU offers competitive assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships that can help you pay for tuition and living expenses while you focus on your studies full time.
About Our Faculty
Psychology faculty members have doctoral degrees and emphasize the wide range of subjects within the discipline such as School, Counseling, and Clinical Psychology as well as Counseling Education. You will find our faculty members open, available, and eager to help our students explore the fascinating world of human behavior, motivation, cultural responsive practices, development, cognition and memory. Our faculty has applied research opportunities where you could work with children, adolescents, adults, and families. Call our department office and ask to speak with one of our faculty members.
