PAU’s Global Online M.A. Degree Program in Counseling
Awareness of an urgent need to advance counselor education and training around the world is growing. To help to improve counseling in countries like China where the indigenous counselor profession is still developing, Palo Alto University (PAU)’s Global Online Master’s degree program in Counseling is pioneering an innovative hybrid strategy that blends several key components:
It offers students a systematic distance learning curriculum that has been carefully designed to meet the highest international standards for counselor education.
Online seminars especially organized for students who are enrolled in China provide an opportunity to discuss practical ways to apply what is learned to the Chinese context.
It fosters the development of on-the-ground practicum sites in China where PAU students can receive clinical training and supervision that meet international standards of excellence.
