¿Qué aprenderé?

The future is in the next generation of students. As a vital part of the educational leadership team, school counselors provide valuable assistance to students, whether they are setting the tone in elementary schools or enhancing the learning process in secondary school or beyond.

Why Choose School Counseling?

The M.A. in school counseling program is designed for those seeking school provisional counseling certification, and prepares you for work in a variety of settings. It is grounded in research and shaped by the needs of schools and other organizations that require professional counseling services. Upon completion of the program, you’ll meet the requirements for provisional certification as a school counselor in New York State.

The Classroom

The small class size (no more than 18-20 in a section) provides students and professors the opportunity to collaborate and get to know one another. We accept students from diverse educational backgrounds and professional experiences. From economics and finance, to humanities teachers and engineers, each student brings their experiences to the classroom and everyone benefits. Most students form lifelong connections.

The Faculty

The faculty in this department are more than professors, — they’re practitioners, from mental health and school counselors to psychologists. Their diverse training and years of job knowledge will enhance your classroom experience and accelerate your learning.
