M.S.Ed. in School Counseling
School counselors are essential members of the education community. School counselors help students achieve academically, develop both personally and socially, and consider future educational and career avenues. If you are interested in a challenging career within the educational system outside of the classroom, and you want to make a real difference in the lives of young people, you will find a career in school counseling to be enjoyable and gratifying.
The 48-credit M.S.Ed. Program in School Counseling provides students with core knowledge in professional issues and ethics, counseling theories, human development, counseling skills, group work, assessment, and career development. Building upon these core content areas, the school counseling program focuses specifically on the development of knowledge and skills necessary to work in today’s schools: contemporary practice of school counseling, school-based research, program development and evaluation, advocacy, leadership, collaboration and consultation. Our 48-credit M.S.Ed. Program in School Counseling is registered with the New York State Education Department as satisfying the educational requirements for provisional certification as a school counselor.
