Master of Science in Education: Student Affairs and College Counseling
Through a counselor education framework established by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Program (CACREP) standards, the 48-credit MSEd graduate program in Student Affairs and College Counseling is less than one of 20 national programs that are designed to prepare student affairs practitioners as educators and counselors, not administrators.
Students learn entry-level skills to develop and manage supportive relationships with contemporary college students to foster their development and facilitate learning opportunities. Students will also learn the historical and philosophical ethos of student affairs as a helping profession, and integrate developmental counseling theories into educational programs and interventions to promote student persistence towards graduation.
Those enrolled in the program will also specifically learn counseling skills, crisis management techniques, career development theories, and are exposed to diversity issues and how student affairs professionals as social justice advocates can address historical, societal, and contemporary inequities within their practice.
