Master's School Counseling

School Counseling Students

About the Program

The Master of Education degree in School Counseling is for those who wish to be a school counselor leader and work with K-12 students in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social development as well as contributing to the overall climate of the school environment. You acquire the skills to take the national Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Exam (CPCE) and move toward licensure. Recent graduates have become counselors at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Program Objectives

By graduation, you will be able to:

  • Meet training requirements established by the Ohio Board of Education for licensure as a school counselor.
  • Participate in a field-based practice and internship experience.
  • Work on research projects with professors and doctoral students, which affords opportunities to prepare for doctoral level training.
