Counseling Program

45Years School Counseling Banner2 

The UWRF Counseling Program prepares graduate students to work as professional school counselors in diverse pK-16 school settings. Ranked in the top 20% of UWRF programs following a 2010 university prioritization review, the Counseling Program offers small class sizes, customizable graduation plans, and frequent interaction with faculty members. Upon graduation, students will have a Masters of Science in Education (M.S.E.), which contributes to their professional license qualifications.  88% of graduates obtained school counseling positions over the last 5 years. In 2014, the UWRF Counseling Program was chosen as 1 of 15 nationwide programs to receive a grant from the National Board of Certified Counselors to support our CACREP accreditation process.
