Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI), a provider of post-secondary education services focused on providing higher access to higher education, announced today that University of the Rockies, a graduate school specializing in psychology programs at the master's and doctoral levels, has added a new Master of Arts specialization in Career Management and Counseling.
This specialization responds to a need for degrees in psychology with a career management and counseling emphasis. Graduates will be well-equipped to pursue jobs as a career consultant, career management specialist, career planning counselor, and career services director.
“In these times of economic uncertainty, when so many professionals are considering a career change, there is a rapidly emerging market for career services professionals who can provide assessment and access to occupational information, and assist with career decision-making skills, personal branding, and career marketing skills,” said Dr. David Solly, dean of the School of Professional Psychology at the University of the Rockies.
The Master of Arts in Career Management and Counseling is currently available online and on campus, through the University of the Rockies. This specialization is not intended to prepare students for licensure as professional counselors, and does not lead to licensure. Students should check applicable laws in the state in which they reside and work to determine requirements for licensure.
