San Francisco State University  

Career Counseling prepares graduates to work in high school and college career centers and advising offices. Graduates can establish private career counseling and consultation practices while others enter career development centers in private industry and public agencies. Career counseling encompasses the well-being of the whole individual and how work and career relate to family, fulfillment and lifestyle. Multicultural and social justice foundations are integrated throughout the program. In addition, issues such as worker dysfunction, workplace violence and sexual harassment are covered in the curriculum. This program achieves most of the basic educational requirements for the professional counselor license in California.
