The B.A. (Hons ) in Counselling and Addiction Studies Course is a 1-year add-on programme to our Level 7 programme at ICHAS or equivalent Level 7 qualification in a related field of study. This programme was recently revised and validated by Quality and Qualification Ireland (QQI) in 2015. The course is highly interactive and it has been designed specifically for those who want to study to become competent professional practitioners in counselling and addiction related areas.
The programme combines theory and practical skills, Psychopathology, contemporary discourses in counselling, advanced counselling and psychotherapeutic skills, principles and practices of group therapy and stress and anxiety related disorders. You will then apply these to the completion of a final year project and an applied practice work placement.
The part-time fees programme runs 1 evening per week (6pm to 10pm) and saturdays (9.30am to 4.30pm) over the 2 semesters September to December and January to April.
