School Counseling 3+2

With our School Counseling 3+2 program, you'll earn two degrees (a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master's in School Counseling) in just five years, giving you a competitive advantage right at the start of your school counseling career.

LVC’s program is aligned with the requirements of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP)* and the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE).

Need-based departmental scholarships are available.

*The College will begin the CACREP application process later this year.
