Key Features

The practical focus allows graduate students to develop advanced techniques in the specialized areas of counseling that schools require. Graduate students who complete the Education - School Counseling program at Saint Peter's University will gain the prerequisite knowledge about counseling, but more importantly will gain the necessary background and skills to guide students beyond the pedagogical scope provided in typical counseling programs. 

Knowledge and skills are developed along contemporary challenges faced by today’s schools. Appropriate emphasis is placed on techniques for counseling students in general education classes as well as specialized settings. 

The Graduate Education programs enable classroom teachers, educational professionals, administrators, and leaders to continue their professional development. The programs prepare individuals with the knowledge needed to advance their careers, as well as train qualified candidates wishing to enter the teaching and counseling professions.

The Graduate Education programs are offered on a flexible schedule to suit the needs of working adults. Classes are offered once-a-week in the later afternoon and evening.
