Counselor Education Programs

A counselor education degree is geared towards students who would like to become school counselors for students in a K-12 setting. A doctorate degree in counselor education helps to specialize a psychology student’s skills in mediating and guiding K-12 students. Students interested in this field should have a strong desire to help people and inspire respect, trust, and confidence in the students they work with. Elementary counselors would observe behavior and assist with special needs students. A high school level counselor would help mediate student issues and guide educational paths into colleges and technical institutes.
