St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee, Okla., announced this week that the Higher Learning Commission approved its newest graduate degree, a Masters in Professional Counseling. University president Dr. Gregory Main said, according to the University, that the program "is perfectly suited to our mission and complements our academic strengths.”
The University officially opened enrollment for its Masters in Professional Counseling program earlier this year and classes are set to begin this fall. Three tracks of study are available for students: Professional Licensed Counselor, Pastoral Counseling, or Counseling Psychology.
Main said, according to the University, "Our Benedictine values of caring for the whole person in mind, body and spirit will serve our counseling students well as they prepare for their career."
Throughout its courses, the program emphasizes assisting those from different cultural backgrounds and religions, aiding those who suffer, grieve, or struggle with “end-of-life challenges,” and working in both an ethical and “clinically responsible” manner.
