School Counseling (M.S.)

The Master of Science in School Counseling is designed to meet the needs of college graduates who desire training in counseling and wish to provide counseling services to students in a school setting. Freed-Hardeman University's M.S. in School Counseling program integrates elements of the counseling and education professions with principles of the Christian faith to produce graduates ready for careers in professional school counseling. Successful completion of the program leads to Tennessee licensure as a school counselor for K-12 schools.

The Master of Science in School Counseling requires that students satisfactorily complete 61 semester hours of course work and pass a comprehensive exam. Included in the 61 hours are a practicum and two internships, in which students complete counseling in a school environment. These experiences take place under the supervision of well-trained counselor supervisors.

Career Opportunities. A master's degree in school counseling (with licensure where required) may lead to employment in a variety of school settings, including public, private, and professional schools. Further study at the doctoral level may prepare students for faculty positions at various schools, colleges, and universities.
