Master of Education in Counselling Acadia University




Course info


The Master of Education in Counselling program at Acadia University is nationally accredited by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), through the Council on Accreditation of Counsellor Education Programs (CACEP). The program is intended for teachers pursuing a career in school counselling and others pursuing a career in counselling through various agencies.

As a full-time student, you will begin the program in July and generally study for 14 months if you follow the non-thesis route. If you choose to study part-time, you will begin your program on campus in July and follow a cohort program that generally takes three years to complete. If you enroll as a thesis student, you should expect to spend additional time in the program.

In our Counselling program, you will:

  • Prepare to be a leader in the profession through your pursuit of disciplined inquiry; understanding of and respect for human diversity; and your development, use, and evaluation of effective counselling practices.
  • Devote yourself to the prevention, remediation, and amelioration of emotional, cognitive, behavioural, and interpersonal difficulties, and the enhancement of human potential and quality of life.
  • Build the awareness and skills to work with diverse populations from individual, social, and organizational perspectives. Our program is focused on integrating theory, practice and research.
  • Explore a wide variety of counselling approaches including existential, person-centered, cognitive-behavioural, narrative, and family-systems.
  • Study a curriculum tailored for accreditation standards and designed to prepare you for a variety of work settings and for provincial registration in Nova Scotia and for national certification.
