Barry University’s Department of Counseling has a long history of preparing students to be professional counselors, scholars, and leaders. Our MS in Counseling programs integrate theory, research, and practice so graduates are not only prepared as counselors but also leaders in the field.
An inclusive academic community is fostered through collaboration, scholarly and critical analysis, and respect. Because we value diversity, we are committed to promoting student and system multicultural competence and sensitivity. We train students to become counselors who assist individuals, couples, and families find solutions and untapped resources to work through challenges that bring them to counseling.
