The M.Sc. Counselling Programme is a part-time three year programme that seeks to provide graduate training and education for Caribbean nationals who want to work as counsellors. Persons who do not have the qualifying courses will have to spend an additional year qualifying for entry. Qualifying courses will be offered by the Hugh Wynter Fertility Management Unit, Faculty of Medical Sciences, UWI, Mona.
Those applicants with a first degree will be exempt from the qualifying courses if they obtained at least a B grade in each of the following qualifying courses during their undergraduate degree: Introduction to Individual Counselling; Introduction to Group Counselling; Developmental Psychology and Abnormal Psychology.
The programme is for psychologists, educators, health personnel, social workers and ministers of religion who are currently working in or aspiring to work in counselling fields in the schools, and in the health and community settings.
Those wishing to be exempted from the qualifying courses should already have at least a B grade in the four qualifying courses, studied in a B.A or B.Sc. Counselling or Psychology programme at the undergraduate level. If accepted, these students will do a three year programme without the additional qualifying year.
