Pre-Pastoral Counseling (BA w/concentration)
Bachelor of Arts
Health care facilities, social service organizations, correctional institutions, church ministries, and residential care facilities often employ Pastoral Counselors to provide psychological and spiritual guidance to patients/clients and their families. With a strong psychology and theology background, Christian pastoral counselors integrate the best of clinical mental health care practice with the wisdom of Christian spirituality and theology.
High achieving students pursuing a Pre-Pastoral Counseling concentration can choose to apply for membership as an Honors Program candidate.
With a Bachelor of Arts in Theology or Psychology degree with a Pre-Pastoral Counseling concentration, Lourdes students work closely with their advisor throughout their undergraduate studies. Upon graduation, Lourdes alumni are prepared to pursue a Master of Divinity or MA in Pastoral Counseling degree from an accredited institution.
