Bridge to Counseling Program
The Bridge to Counseling Program is designed for students who have no knowledge of or experience with the mental health profession. This option is unique to Northwestern’s Counseling Program. It reflects our appreciation for students who are new to the field and/or desire a meaningful second career. We are committed to adequately preparing those students for practice in a challenging and complex field.
Applicants with no clinical experience, knowledge, or education in the counseling or mental health field are eligible for the Bridge Program.
Bridge students complete 27 courses during seven, 10, or 13 quarters. This program includes the 24 courses of the Standard Program, plus an additional quarter with three courses that orient aspiring counselors to the key theories, concepts, and applied aspects of the field.
