Master of Counseling Schools

Our selection of graduate programs in counseling is a mixture of psychology degrees, counseling degrees and education degrees that have specialization in school counseling. These schools all have campus programs others operate a handful of campuses, but all of the schools we list here have online options or blended options as well. Counseling professions generally require licensure from the state, whether the degree is in social work, marriage & family therapy, clinical counseling, addiction counseling, or any related field. If you enroll in a graduate counseling program, check on the academic requirements in the state where you intend to practice.
