Growing Demand for Qualified School Counselors

School counselors play a critical role in today's increasingly complex, challenging and diverse schools. Graduates of the program are well equipped to confront these complexities, with the dual advantage of having both an MS in School Counseling and a PPS Credential in School Counseling from CBU's widely respected Dr. Bonnie G. Metcalf School of Education.

The master's degree and PPS credential qualify school counselors to work in public school systems at both the school site level and the district level. School counselors are uniquely qualified to shape the success of students and schools by:

  • Collaborating with teachers, parents and administrators to implement solutions to learning and behavior problems.
  • Providing counseling to help resolve interpersonal or family problems that interfere with school performance.
  • Working directly with children and their families to resolve problems in adjustment and learning.
  • Helping families and schools manage crises.
  • Developing and evaluating intervention programs for at-risk and high-needs students.
  • Promoting tolerance, understanding and appreciation for student diversity.
  • Developing and evaluating programs to make schools safer and more effective learning environments.
