Western has been a huge blessing in my life and to my educational/vocational goals.

I am about to complete my 3rd semester of studies, meaning one year of graduate school is almost in the books!

The professors are humble, incredibly gifted at what they do, and more than happy to interact with students.

The M.A. of Counseling at Western Seminary is focused on experience inside and outside the classroom, preparing students for licensure, and developing ethical models of practice. Overall, the program is founded on what Jesus taught us through the Bible. The workload is not debilitatingly unbearable but it is heavy and reading intensive. You need to work for your grades and it is wise to have a strategy for how you will juggle school, homework, family, work, and down time. The facilities are adequate and unique to Western. As far as internship/job opportunities Western Seminary is always sending out emails and providing binders of options for students seeking internships/jobs.
I would choose Western Seminary again if I had the opportunity. The $11,000 (+/-) tuition is doable, textbook requirements are affordable, and the school is competent with its online classrooms. The faculty are the best part about school. They have passion and experience mixed with the gift to teach, and those are three excellent when combined together. Overall, Western Seminary is not flashy. The school is focused on preparing its students with the skills, knowledge, moral backbone, and experience they need to get jobs and fulfill goals; especially the goal of advancing the Kingdom of God.
