Master of Counseling: School Counseling

The Oregon State University Counseling Academic Unit and OSU Ecampus provide a 75-credit Master of Counseling (M.Coun.) program with an option in school counseling. This unique and well-established program is now available through Ecampus in a hybrid format to be more accessible to students throughout the Northwest: 50 percent online and 50 percent via classroom meetings held two weekends each term in Salem, Oregon.

Online practicum and internship courses during year 2 and 3 are synchronous, which require “live” online attendance during specific dates/times.

Become an exceptional school counselor

OSU's master's program is focused on preparing you to utilize skills in individual and group counseling, consultation and system change, leadership, advocacy and action research to:

  • Deliver comprehensive school counseling program services to all students
  • Increase college-going rates among under-represented populations

A respected and accredited program

The M.Coun. program is taught by renowned counseling faculty within OSU's College of Education. The program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), as well as Oregon's Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC). In addition, being a graduate of a CACREP program gives you a competitive career advantage and a greater chance for acceptance into a doctoral program in counseling.
