School Counseling Graduate Program

The school counseling program is designed to prepare students to serve the multiple mental health or counseling needs within schools in an urban setting. Students will be given a strong preparation in clinical intervention with a specific emphasis on meeting needs of urban youth and their families. Additionally, students will learn how to develop a primary intervention program that impacts the entire school community through implementation of the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) Model. Students will also learn how to organize counseling interventions, which are integrated into the school curriculum. Prevention and early intervention will be the primary goals taught to our students.
