About

Receive training in specific skills, theories and practices necessary to implement programs of change and transformation in school settings with Millersville University's graduate-level School Counseling program.

Overview

Develop your passion for serving students through the challenging coursework and practical experiences incorporated in the graduate-level School Counseling program. Pennsylvania certifications in school counseling have moved away from separate categories of “Elementary School Counselor” and “Secondary School Counselor” and toward a unified certification of “PK-12 School Counselor." Millersville University offers 36-, 48- and 60-credit School Counseling programs with the option for Pennsylvania Department of Education certification. 

This graduate-level course of study provides candidates with a multidisciplinary approach to school counseling through careful examination of knowledge bases and research in the fields of education, psychology and counseling. This program emphasizes the combined use of soft skills, such as relationship formation and maintenance, and hard skills, such as data-based decision making and evidence-based practices, in preparing school counselors as agents of change. Graduates of this comprehensive program of study will be prepared to work in an educational health setting or pursue an advanced doctoral study.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Study of the Individual 
  • Counseling Theory and Practice I

Audience

Coursework explores educational foundations, child development, counseling theories, classroom intervention and more. Students will also complete a semester-long, 100-hour field experience at a practicum site.
