This online version of the first graduate program is now approved in eleven states.
Weimar University’s Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology and Wellness program was the University’s first graduate program and began in the fall of 2020. Recently approved for an online option by the Western Association of Senior Schools and Colleges and University Commission (WSCUC), Weimar University is now accepting students to the program from eleven states with the goal of expanding in the future.
This two-year, completely virtual program is designed to meet the Board of Behavioral Sciences ( BBS ) requirements for the state of California. Thus, program graduates are eligible to receive licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and/or Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).
Weimar University seeks to accommodate a variety of schedules but offers recorded classes where time zone shifts make it difficult to meet with other students. In addition to all of these features, it’s the combination of overall wellness with the hope and healing found in Christ for mental wellbeing that makes this program unique.
“Particularly now, there is a raising need for mental health counselors and especially since COVID, many have suffered from tremendous mental health impact…. Because people are inside a lot, they are becoming depressed,” said Wanda Swensen, Weimar University director of enrollment management.
“Through the Master’s in Psychology and Wellness, God is using Weimar to train us to help those facing spiritual, emotional, and mental challenges. Through God’s Word, coupled with His natural methods, we are learning to bring hope and peace to those who are suffering conditions such as depression and anxiety in this sinful world,” added Amy Krum, current student.
