The Master of Education in School Counseling degree program is intended for individuals who plan a professional career in school counseling. In this program, the school counselor is viewed as a professional who provides services to all students in a K-12 school setting. In serving this population, the school counselor seeks to facilitate the learning and positive development of all students, and provides preventative, remedial and, at times, crisis intervention services. Thus, at the conclusion of this graduate program, candidates possess the requisite knowledge, skills, and dispositions that will allow them to function effectively in the holistic development of students in the K-12 setting in accordance with the CACREP Standards for School Counseling Programs.
A background in teacher education is NOT a requirement for admission to the School Counseling Program. Students who successfully complete the program will be eligible for certification as a K-12 school counselor in Maryland.
The School Counseling Program is accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education.
