School Counseling

The Master of Science in School Counseling prepares graduates to become school counselors for students in grades Pre-K-12. Through classroom, experiential, and online learning opportunities, this 60-credit master's degree teaches students to develop a comprehensive school sousing program that is aligned with the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National model.

Graduate Students in this program can expect to learn by working directly in schools with students to identity their academic, career, and social-emotional needs, and deliver developmentally appropriate interventions through individual and small group counseling, classroom curriculum delivery, and facilitation of data-driven programs. Winona State University school counseling program graduates are impactful change agents who make a positive difference in schools across the country. 

This program is accredited by CACREP through March 31, 2025.
