Masters Program in Counseling Psychology


Students and Faculty of the MACP program

The mission of the TAMIU MACP program is to prepare students to sensitively serve the counseling needs of clients from diverse cultures and multicultural communities. The program aims to train students in prevention, and community education processes as well as in individual, and group counseling.  Students wishing to pursue a doctoral degree in psychology can pursue the thesis option. Our curricular model is based on the scientist-practitioner model and requires 48 semester hours. The program will move to a 60-hr curricular model in Fall of 2014. Faculty is committed to mentoring and guiding students in achieving their academic and professional goals.


We will offer a certificate in Bilingual Counseling to students who pass an additional nine-hour program.  These students will be especially trained to meet the counseling needs of the underserved and rapidly growing population of Spanish speaking clients. Earning this certificate is elective to students enrolled in the regular scientist-practitioner model.
