Master of Science in School Counseling
Effective spring 2017, we are no longer accepting applications to the School Counseling Program.
The Master of Science in School Counseling program prepares school counselors for positions in public or private elementary, middle, or secondary schools. The program is systemically oriented and designed to promote an approach focused on family strengths, which includes a collaborative assessment and intervention model between parents and children and their school systems.
A minimum of 60 semester credits of coursework is required which contains practicum and internship experiences. Students must pass the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination and defend an academic portfolio of their learning experiences and their capstone project to complete the degree. Of the 60 credits, 51 are considered core courses, and 9 credits are earned in practicum and internship. Graduates are eligible to apply for Florida certification as a school counselor after meeting FLDOE criteria. It is the responsibility of the student to keep abreast of the FLDOE requirements.
