Description Yorkville University’s Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology is offered using an online/blended delivery model. This model allows the university to deliver quality graduate level degree programs to students whose work, family commitments, or other life circumstances may make it difficult for them to study in a traditional in-class and on campus setting. The program is comprised of five full-time terms of study and takes approximately 20 months to complete depending on the length of the practicum. Students attending part-time will take longer to complete the program. In the first four trimesters, didactic courses are delivered online and allow for an unprecedented level of communication among students and between student and professor using a state of the art electronic learning platform.
