The Department of Counselling came into being as one of the new departments within the Faculty for Social Wellbeing on the first of August 2012. The Department is responsible for the design and delivery of all counselling courses offered by the University of Malta. It is also responsible for the design and delivery of Personal and Social Development courses within the Faculty of Education. The first counselling courses to be offered were a series of diplomas and postgraduate diplomas in the late 1990’s by the Department of Psychology. In 2007, the University Senate approved the first Master in Counselling course and this has been offered every two years since 2008. In 2010 the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the University of Malta and the University of Maryland (College Park) meant that a dual degree Master in Transcultural Counselling started to be offered at the Valletta Campus. The Master in Transcultual Counselling was offered as a dual degree with the University of Maryland to two consecutive cohorts. As from 2013/4, the Master in Transcultural Counselling is being offered as a collaborative degree with the University of New Orleans The Department of Counselling through its academic staff is also involved in Peace Education, Ethics Research, a nationwide Dyslexia project, Multicultural Counselling and Social Justice. It also has a special relationship with the International Association for Counselling (IAC), the global organisation for counselling with consultative status within the United Nations.
