The Bachelor of Faith-Based Family Counseling degree program is a 120-credit hour undergraduate degree program which takes the student between 3 to 4 years to complete depending on course load.  This degree program consists of 40 courses preselected by USILACS; however, although all courses with this degree program are identical by name and number, individual research projects, assignments within courses, experience and paper assignments, and exams do differ based upon which minor a student selects.

Graduates of this program will develop the skills needed to become a family counselor.  The family is the oldest institution known to man.  Family counseling is a very rewarding profession with employment opportunities in schools, religious centers, family services, colleges, corporations, government, medical facilities, correctional institutions, and many others.  All of the counseling degrees at USILACS also focus on counseling in a school or educational setting; thus, they include many courses in the education field. 

The base courses are designed to educate you in the broad variety of liberal art subjects which are expected of an American undergraduate program. Base courses include subjects such as humanities, social science, creative arts, literature, English, math, public speaking, music, history, and religion.

Building on your base courses, the Bachelor of Faith-Based Family Counseling undergraduate degree program allows you the opportunity to develop specialized knowledge, skills, and experience in the exciting and exacting field of counseling.  You will learn valuable skills in fields such as marriage, family harmony, human relationships, motivating others, counseling, ethics, family services, psychology, education, culture, and other areas needed to become skilled in the field. The program also includes 120-Hour TESOL Certification.

This program utilizes extensive use of hands-on experience in many subjects.  Students will gain actual real-life experience in subjects such as public speaking, effective presentations, sales, morals, ethics, counseling, etiquette, and one-on-one teaching skills. Many of our courses will require students to act, give speeches, presentations, and demonstrations in front of large and small groups.
