The aim of this programme is to educate students in the theory and practice of psychology and counselling, with a focus on personal development, family studies and broader mental health interventions. The programme helps students develop an integrated and relevant counselling praxis within the South African context. It also prepares students for further studies in psychology and trains them in foundational social research skills. During their first year, the students will also take the foundational set of modules, referred to as the ‘Cornerstone Core’. These include History, Sociology, Ethics, Philosophy, Economics and Leadership Studies. These modules are embedded in Cornerstone’s core values of inclusivity, excellence, integrity, unity, respect and creativity.
