Note: City University will offer an online Interviewing and Counselling skills course (PSY421) in the summer quarters.

*Although we are in the process of adding a prerequisite course to
our program we will waive this requirement for all Fall 2019 cohorts*
In compliance with the BC Ministry of Advanced Education regulator, CityU is adding a course on basic counselling skills as a prerequisite to our program. However, the university implementation process requires additional steps to be completed before it is ready for student registration.
Given this delay, CityU is unable to offer an online version of this course early this summer, as hoped. In recognition of new students’ need to plan their time and expenses, we have decided to put off the requirement for this year’s program entry.
