Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS)

The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) in counseling is designed for students who already have a master's degree in an appropriate counseling-related field and desire to take continuing education course work, often to meet the state requirements for Pennsylvania licensure or certification. The particular courses (a minimum of 12 credits) for students in the CAGS program will be tailored to the specific needs of each student.  Students who pursue the CAGS with field experience must complete one on-campus intensive course and may have additional requirements as specified by the counseling program.  If no field experience is required, the entire CAGS can be completed online.
