The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Organizational Development & Leadership
(CAGS-ODL), offered at both Philadelphia and Georgia campuses, provides graduate-level
applied behavioral sciences coursework in organizational development & leadership
to individuals seeking to enhance their competency as leader practitioners in diverse
sectors, disciplines and organization settings. CAGS applicants from non-PCOM programs
are eligible for the CAGS-ODL program if they possess a master’s degree in any discipline.
PCOM MS-ODL and MS-Mental Health Counseling students may enroll in the CAGS program
while completing the MS degree.
CAGS courses in ODL may not be used to take the licensure exam that leads to a Licensed Professional Counselor
(LPC) credential in Pennsylvania. The LPC credential is only available to those candidates
who meet the CAGS Mental Health Counseling criteria. Candidates are responsible for
confirming licensure requirements of the state in which they intend to practice. CAGS
candidates seeking a combination of ODL courses and the LPC credential may be required
to take more than four CAGS courses to meet their professional counseling licensure
requirements. For further clarification, a discussion with the CAGS Directors is
