Requirements for the Dual Degrees in Counseling Psychology and International Peace and Conflict Resolution

(86 credits; 51 credits for the Counseling Psychology program, 35 credits for the IPCR program with 12 shared credits.)

Structure of the Program

What follows is a sample course sequence for a full-time student. This course sequence can be modified to accommodate students who want to take less than four courses a semester.

The foundation coursework for both IPCR, including the thesis requirement, and Counseling Psychology, including licensure requirements, remain intact. The Study Abroad Requirement within IPCR will be fulfilled by courses within the Counseling Psychology Trauma Concentration (for a total of 9 credits). The internship requirement for IPCR will be satisfied by the Internship placement within the Counseling Psychology program, which will take place in a setting that allows for the development of skills related to the treatment of trauma.
