Program Description The school counseling program prepares prospective school counselors to work with ethnically and racially diverse populations in New York City public and private schools. Working from a holistic approach, candidates are encouraged to develop the necessary skills for engaging all members of the educational community-parents, administrators, teachers, students, and community organizations-in the process of making schools more responsive, equitable, and caring environments that foster life-long learning and growth. Internships and supervised field experiences are an integral part of our course of study. The master of science in education provides graduates with New York State initial certification as school counselors. A 12-credit specialization in bilingual school counseling is also offered. Graduates of our program are sought after by public and private schools where they counsel students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. All classes in the School Counseling Program are face-to-face. There are no fully-online courses. Instruction methods vary per instructor, but generally consist of lectures, discussions, application exercises, experiential methods and exercises, presentations, supervision, fieldwork, Blackboard assisted instruction, and audiovisual and web resources, among other.
