The M.A. of Counseling at Western Seminary is focused on experience inside and outside the classroom, preparing students for licensure, and developing ethical models of practice. Overall, the program is founded on what Jesus taught us through the Bible. The workload is not debilitatingly unbearable but it is heavy and reading intensive. You need to work for your grades and it is wise to have a strategy for how you will juggle school, homework, family, work, and down time. The facilities are adequate and unique to Western. As far as internship/job opportunities Western Seminary is always sending out emails and providing binders of options for students seeking internships/jobs.

I would choose Western Seminary again if I had the opportunity. The $11,000 (+/-) tuition is doable, textbook requirements are affordable, and the school is competent with its online classrooms. The faculty are the best part about school. They have passion and experience mixed with the gift to teach, and those are three excellent when combined together. Overall, Western Seminary is not flashy. The school is focused on preparing its students with the skills, knowledge, moral backbone, and experience they need to get jobs and fulfill goals; especially the goal of advancing the Kingdom of God.

The ethnic and racial diversity on campus is fairly widespread. It is common to have 2-4 individuals out of 15-20 students in a class who are born and raised in other countries. They bring a lot of good points up in discussions and it is interesting to hear their perspectives. What is also unique is how many classmates have traveled abroad, served in international ministries, or spent parts of their lives in other countries. When it comes to religion, we are a Christian Seminary. However, what is interesting is how many different perspectives we all have in how we go about being "Christ like". Meaning that, while we have common principles, beliefs, and goals, we each bring an uniqueness of how we go about doing work for the Kingdom of God. Because of this I hear differences in political beliefs and other thoughts pertaining to the government. What is important, I have not experienced any shaming or disrespectful arguing of beliefs. At Western Seminary there is a level of respect and mutual understanding that at the end of the day we are working for the same God.
