The program of study prepares graduates with basic counseling, interviewing, training, management and/or consultation skills.  Master's level management courses provide for a program like few other's. Graduates qualify for a variety of positions in business, government, non-profits, social services, and consulting. Additional coursework can lead to a professional counseling license.

The curriculum for this program does not fulfill the Ohio Professional Counselor licensure requirements.
