M.S. in School Counselor
The Master of Science in School Counselor program is nationally accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

Graduates of this program help students cope with a myriad of problems. They learn effective individual and group counseling techniques and gain practical field experience through internships at all levels (elementary, middle and high school). This 48-credit program, plus two years of experience as a school counselor in New York, leads to permanent New York State certification as a school counselor. Students applying to the Master of Science in School Counselor program who meet the admissions requirements are only accepted into the program for the Fall semester of each academic year.
