School Counselors perform a vital role in facilitating change - for students, teachers, parents, and schools as a whole. This school counseling program emphasizes helping skills that are applied in the context of a comprehensive counseling and guidance program. School counseling students become multiculturally competent and skilled social change agents, achievement advocates, and educational leaders who address issues of equity to help youth reach their educational, career and personal/social potential.
Designed to meet the needs of working people, an average program of study is usually completed in three years. Courses are offered in the afternoons and evenings and meet weekly.
The Counseling Program operates under a cohort model that begins in the fall term. Admitted students may choose to take some foundational courses during the summer. We no longer admit students for the winter or spring terms.
