School Counseling (M.A.)

 

Faculty

Description

The School Counseling degree offers two choices for counseling students, and both result in a Master of Arts degree (M.A.) in School Counseling. The first is a 60-credit School Counseling program that prepares individuals for careers as counselors in elementary and secondary schools. This second track is a 60-credit Counseling Urban Students that provides candidates an opportunity to expand their employment opportunities to settings serving children/youth outside of the schools, such as treatment foster care or nonprofit youth programs. For students who also desire state licensure, candidates can also attain the licensure requirements with this second track.

Both programs are National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (N.C.A.T.E.) accredited and meet state certification requirements of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. Students seeking school counselor certification in other states should consult the appropriate certification offices in those jurisdictions. The School of Education has submitted an initial application and self-study for accreditation for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling programs with the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

Both School Counseling and Counseling Urban Students consist of required courses, laboratory and field experiences, and a comprehensive exam. Students' programs are planned in consultation with their faculty advisor; prior experiences and professional goals are considered.

Learning experiences emphasize the integration of theoretical knowledge with professional practice in a supervised setting. Attention is given to understanding ethical, multicultural, socioeconomic, and developmental issues. Graduates from Trinity's counseling degree programs are qualified to provide individual and group counseling; implement assessment and consultation services; and develop, direct, and evaluate comprehensive counseling services.
