About this course
The Master of Counselling is a two-year course (full time equivalent), and is available on both a full time and part time basis. The course provides an initial or further professional qualification in counselling for people who have a previous Bachelor-level qualification in another field. The learning outcomes include the development and enhancement of specific professional and vocational skills or the enhancement of existing skills and knowledge acquired in undergraduate study, and the acquisition of in-depth understanding of a specific area of knowledge.
The course enables students to fulfil the academic criteria, including the number of hours of on campus studies, and some of the practical experience criteria required for registered membership of relevant professional associations (Christian Counsellors Association of Queensland and Queensland Counsellors Association), as well as those on the register of PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia). Further information regarding memberships is available from the School of Social Sciences Administration Office.
