Master of Arts in Education: School Counseling
The Counseling Program is designed to provide the qualifications necessary to apply for a license or certification as a School Counselor. This program is approved by the New Jersey Department of Education.
The practical focus allows graduate students to develop advanced techniques in the specialized areas of counseling that schools require. Graduate students who complete the program will gain the prerequisite knowledge about counseling, but more importantly will gain the necessary background and skills to guide students beyond the pedagogical scope provided in typical counseling programs. Knowledge and skills are developed along contemporary challenges faced by today’s schools. Appropriate emphasis is placed on techniques for counseling students in general education classes as well as specialized settings.
