Master of Education (MEd) in School Counseling

An innovative mixture of education and psychology, our Master of Education (MEd) in School Counseling program is accredited by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, preparing students to serve in a k-12 setting. Graduates of our program are prepared to work as professional school counselors, working with students, teachers, administrators, and the community. 

Under the guidance of dedicated faculty who  are committed to promoting compassion, self-awareness, social justice and an authentic appreciation for diversity, our students graduate as leaders and multicultural competent counselors who are empowered to provide effective guidance to all students. Although our curriculum is intended to prepare students to become school counselors, higher education institutes as well as public and private agencies outside of school settings are interested in obtaining the services of professional counselors. 

Candidates complete a master's degree while developing the necessary qualifications to meet the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requirements for licensure at (K-8) or a secondary counselor (5-12). In addition to the 54-credit MEd in School Counseling program, we offer a licensure only track for those who already hold a masters in counseling or psychology.
