Online Master's in School Counseling Programs
Online master’s in school counseling programs provide the theoretical knowledge, practical skills and cross-cultural awareness needed to serve students and their families in these increasingly diverse settings.
Through online coursework, counseling labs and field experiences in schools in or near their own communities, aspiring school counselors in these programs prepare to:
- Provide preK–12 students from diverse backgrounds with academic, social and emotional development, and career counseling in both individual and group settings.
- Apply developmentally and culturally sensitive counseling techniques to support students and their families.
- Advocate effectively on behalf of students in schools, community organizations and other settings.
- Collaborate with teachers, administrators and parents to address issues affecting individual student and overall school performance.
Through a concentration in bilingual school counseling, future counselors can also gain additional expertise in addressing the unique needs of students and families whose first language is not English.
