The School Counseling program at Andrews University is housed in the Department of Graduate Psychology & Counseling. The School Counseling curriculum prepares students for counseling in elementary and secondary schools.
The program includes course work and experiences required for endorsement as a school counselor. Students working toward certification as K-12 school counselors should consult with the coordinator of the School Counseling program about the requirements of the state where they plan to work. Some states require teacher certification in order to obtain school counselor endorsement.
The program is accredited by CACREP, the Council of the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs, a specializing accrediting body recognized by COPA, the Council of Post-Secondary Accreditation. Learn more about our Counseling Education programs >>
