School Counseling

Program Description:

The school counseling program prepares prospective school counselors to work with ethnically and racially diverse populations in New York City public and private schools. Working from a holistic approach, candidates are encouraged to develop the necessary skills for engaging all members of the educational community-parents, administrators, teachers, students, and community organizations-in the process of making schools more responsive, equitable, and caring environments that foster life-long learning and growth. Internships and supervised field experiences are an integral part of our course of study.
The program includes two levels of study: the master of science in education provides graduates with New York State initial certification as school counselors; the advanced certificate in school counseling qualifies candidates with New York State professional certification. A 12-credit specialization in bilingual school counseling is also offered.
