Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling Residencies


Return to: Residency Requirements 


Students in the M.S. in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling program are required to attend and successfully complete two 6-day residencies:

Residency I

This residency is designed to provide students with an opportunity for skill development and supervision; faculty and peer interactions; and additional information focused on counselor multicultural competence. Throughout 6-day residencies, students will participate in cultural competence and field experience workshops, skill development laboratories, and group projects. In addition, each student participates in academic advising with a faculty member at the residency. 

Residency II

This residency is designed to help ensure that students are adequately prepared to start the counseling practicum. To that end, students continue their foundations of professional counseling sessions (career development, consultation and supervision, and psychopharmacology); go through a 10-hour group experience; participate in individual counseling skill development; and complete a social change project.  Students at this residency will participate in reflecting teams as a part of the skill development. All students at this residency will also participate in academic advising with a program faculty member.
