Community matters.

Two times during the program, you'll join your M.A. Counseling cohort on campus for a three-day intensive (Thursday - Saturday) in Grand Rapids, Mich. This allows you to interact in-person with fellow cohort members, build relationships with faculty and learn through in-class experiences.

These six days you spend on campus will enhance your educational experience without causing disruption to your other commitments.
