All of the courses, whether online or in the classroom, are taught by experienced ETBU faculty from the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program, who are active counselors and accomplished scholars. MAC faculty will encourage and mentor you to consider your own faith, the faith of others, and the relationship between counseling and issues connected to faith in your profession.
