Lynch School of Education
counseling, developmental, and educational psychology
The School Counseling program track is a 42-credit hour program that meets current requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Education for initial licensure as an elementary or secondary school counselor.
School Counseling students complete academic and pre-practicum course work and skills training during the first year, with practicum and remaining courses completed in the second year. Students may take summer offerings from the program to assist in the completion of their degrees.
In cases where individuals background in behavioral and social sciences is limited, additional course work may be required. Courses in developmental, personality, social, and quantitative psychology are particularly good foundation courses.
