This degree is ideal for students who desire to take the full 60-hour degree track and are most interested in the practitioner side of counseling. This track also allows students the option of taking the adult or child therapy concentrations. The lone difference between this degree and the Master of Science in Counseling Psychology (MSCP) is the research emphasis. Students taking the MACP route will only have one research class and will not be required to complete a thesis. Further, students who complete the child therapy sequence will meet the academic requirements to become a Registered Play Therapist with theAssociation for Play Therapy in Oklahoma.
