As an integral part of the total educational program for student success, school counselors learn to design, develop, implement and evaluate their comprehensive school counseling program to ensure that every student receives developmentally appropriate competencies in academic, career and personal/social development.
School counselors become professional student advocates who promote equity and access to a rigorous education for every student and who work to prevent and remove barriers to learning. Our graduates develop themselves as culturally sustaining leaders in educational transformation and social justice in the schools and communities they serve.
The program offered by San Diego State University consists of 2 years of full-time graduate study for a 64-unit Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Counseling with a specialization in School Counseling and the California Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) credential for School Counseling. Students begin taking courses in summer prior to the fall semester.
