I will be moving to california from DC, so i'm not exactly sure which geographical area. i am making sure that whatever program i do leads to certification, etc.
it's important to me that the degree is in counseling psychology, not just counseling or marriage and family therapy. the counseling psych degree is more viable for further study (ph.d., etc). USC is the other school I'm looking at. not a lot of places have counseling psychology, but SCU does, hence the interest.
