School Counseling, M.Ed.


Mission Statement: The graduate program in school counseling will equip the counselor with the knowledge and skill necessary to supply guidance and counseling services in a school setting. The school counselor will be able to provide direct counseling to students; consult with parents, teachers and administrators; act as a liaison between the school and outside agencies; and facilitate classroom guidance activities.

The graduate program in school counseling prepares students to be public school counselors and requires 60 semester hours. Students are required to pass a comprehensive exam as a program completion requirement. Texas Counselor certification requires completion of an approved master’s degree, two years of teaching experience, and a passing score on the state mandated examination, the TExES test and an internship in a school setting. Enrollment in courses with the COUN prefix (with the exception of COUN 6013 ) requires admission to the Master of Education in school counseling program or permission of the Counseling Program Coordinator.
