Master of Educational Psychology with Specialization in School Counseling: Typical Program of Study


Students complete between 46 and 48 hours of course work and practical training. Below is typical course sequencing for students wishing to complete their degrees in two- or three-year programs.

Students in this program are required to begin their courses in the summer semester of the year they are admitted. Late afternoon/evening courses are delivered in May but students must attend intensive 7-day all-day classes in June of that same year. A similar schedule is in effect during the student's second summer in the program. Adjustments to this schedule are not possible. Applicants should consider these factors and their existing work/school schedule before submitting their application to this program.
