What is an online MA in Counseling? This is a program of study often designed to give students some insight into human behavior. Counselors may work with children, married couples, addicts or displaced people. To prepare students for this wide array of problems, the required courses may include human growth and development, special techniques in assessment, objective assessment, psychological and educational exceptionalities, clinical and professional issues in counseling, system theory and consultation, and social and biological basis of child and adolescent behavior.

What benefits can an MA in Counseling offer? With a better understanding of human development, behavioral change and psychopathology, you may be more prepared for a career working with others. Some employers may be willing to pay someone with this education more than someone with only a bachelor’s degree.

The cost of an online MA can vary greatly from one school to the next. Tuition may depend on a number of factors, including location, prestige of the school, technology and duration. You might be able to get cost estimates by talking with the school you are interested in attending.

After completing an online MA in Counseling, you may be prepared to work in college counseling centers, social service agencies, hospitals or mental health centers. The exact career you can start may depend on your previous experience and education. With an MA, you may be able to get management or executive-level positions. Some students choose to use a Master of Arts to prepare themselves for more education.
