Texas A&M University
The Master of Education in School Counseling program at Texas A&M University prepares qualified individuals to become personal, academic and career counselors as well as consultants to teachers. The program’s mission is to develop well-trained counselors to play a key part in the academic and personal development of students at all levels of the educational process.
The 36 credit hour program is offered through asynchronous and synchronous formats. The curriculum uses a scholar-practitioner approach that integrates the use of current technology, on-site practicum experiences, and intellectual and creative resources to work with an increasingly diverse and global society.
The program solely prepares students for certification as a school counselor in Texas. It does not prepare students for state licensure as a professional counselor (LPC). Out-of-state applicants are urged to check with their home state requirements to make sure that the program meets the needs for certification.
