Benefits of MSUM's CNSA Program
The Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) ensures our program meets professionally approved standards.
Our CNSA graduates have 100 percent passing rate on the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE) and the National Counselor Examination (NCE).
Fine-tune your counseling skills at MSUM’s Community Outreach Center.
Employment of student affairs and counseling (varies by specialty) professionals is expanding by 12-15 percent, which is as fast as average for all occupations through 2022 (Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2013-14). Our CNSA students have 100 percent placement in related employment to student affairs and counseling.
All courses are delivered from either 4:30-7:00pm or 7:15-9:45pm to accommodate working students; many are hybrid delivery—online learning component with some face-to-face meetings. The program can be completed in two (full-time) to five years.
New students receive one-on-one help in class preparation and course planning from a Graduate Peer Advisor.
