- Professor of Psychology
The Department of Psychology and Counseling offers a five-year, dual-degree (B.A./M.S.) for motivated, academically-talented students.
A dual degree (B.A./M.S.) for motivated, academically talented Art Therapy majors with a 3.25 major GPA and a 3.0 cumulative GPA is offered by the Art and Archaeology Department in partnership with the Psychology and Counseling Department. Dual-degree students will accelerate completion of the undergraduate Bachelor of Arts major in Art Therapy and the Master of Science in Counseling with a specialization in either Clinical Mental Health Counseling or in School Counseling. This program is appropriate for students who plan to use art therapy as part of their future counseling practice; it is not appropriate for students who solely wish to practice as art therapists. Due to the condensed nature of the dual degree program, interested students will be expected to take courses over the summer and/or during January term. Students will plan their coursework with a faculty advisor during their first semester at the College (Undergraduate students who transfer to Hood may be admitted into the accelerated program, but they may not be able to complete both degrees as quickly as a non-transfer student.). Students are encouraged to meet with Counseling faculty about their interests as well as pursue complementary experiences to enhance their application to the program. Admission to the M.S. in Counseling program is not automatic; dual-degree students will still need to apply to the Counseling program for admission.

"I applied to Hood College’s counseling program initially because of its CACREP accreditation, in-depth curriculum and location. While interviewing for the program, I discovered this was the school for me! The types of questions the faculty were asking indicated to me just how much they care about producing effective counselors."
