The Counseling - School Counseling program at California State University East Bay is a full-time, two-year course of study. Courses are offered during the day, in the evening, and on weekends.
School Counseling reflects an integration of local program needs, the campus mission, and the direction provided by the National Standards and National Model of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and the National Career Development Guidelines (NOICC).
Graduates of the MS in Counseling with a concentration in School Counseling often work in community agencies. Other graduates have been hired in agencies and businesses and other diverse settings, such as counselors in junior colleges, colleges, drug and alcohol abuse counselors in hospitals, and as advocates for mentally ill persons.
Additional courses taken for the Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) Credential required by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and coursework required by the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) may lead to positions providing mental health services and guidance support for students in K-12 schools, careers as child therapists in therapeutic nursery schools, assessment counselors, information and referral clinicians in employee assistance programs, individual and family therapists for police departments, organizational development specialists, and human resource professionals.
Some graduates have pursued doctoral-level work in clinical and counseling psychology or education after completing their master’s degree in this program.
