The school counseling emphasis is a 48-credit program designed for graduate students planning to become school counselors. Upon completion of the Master’s Degree with a school counseling emphasis students are eligible for endorsement by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for the early childhood through adolescence school counselor license. School counselors are employed in elementary, middle, and secondary schools. Students who are not current teachers, or lack two years of experience as a teacher, are invited to consider the school counseling emphasis.
