Master of Science in Counseling - School Counseling

School counselors help all the students under their guidance set personal goals, improve their academic achievement, and plan for their careers. You also enrich the educational philosophy of the school that you serve. If you are up to the challenge, the Department of Advanced Educational Programs can help you satisfy state licensure requirements.

The M.S. in Counseling prepares you to help students plan their futures and develop the academic and social skills they need to succeed in a changing world environment. During your three-year program, you will delve deep into the theory behind many issues that arise with youth as they grow and develop, and gain experience in real-world situations through your practicum and internship. Upon completion, you will be prepared to apply for a school counseling license in the state of Kansas. The M.S. in School Counseling is accredited by the Kansas State Department of Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
