Impact students. Impact communities.

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. The program is designed for Oregon and Washington residents. This unique and well-established program is a hybrid, part-time format to be more accessible to students: 50 percent online and 50 percent via classroom meetings held two weekends each term in Wilsonville, Oregon.

Several online practicum and internship course requirements during year 2 and 3 are synchronous, which require “real time” 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.
