Exceptional undergraduate students seeking a bachelor's degree in psychology or social work can apply to Viterbo's Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling (MSMHC) program for provisional admittance. Students who complete the 4+2 option can complete their B.A. or B.S. in Psychology in four years, and their Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling in two years. Students must meet the following requirements:
- 2nd semester junior year at Viterbo
- GPA of 3.25
- Prerequisites of PSYC 171, 340 and a research methods course
Students must also complete all admission requirements for the MSMHC program with the exception of the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) and submission of their final undergraduate transcript; these will be required upon completion of the bachelor degree program. Provisionally admitted students can enroll in a maximum of nine graduate credits (provided availability of seats) to count towards their graduate degree.
