A master’s degree is the final result of years of study in a graduate program, which comes after a bachelor’s degree. It may qualify graduates as an expert in their chosen field of study and enable them to pursue a higher degree if they so desire.

What is an MA in School Counseling? It’s a degree that can give program graduates the necessary skills they need to enter the field of counseling. Graduates should be able to effectively diagnose and treat patients in a school setting with different mental health issues, recognize potential areas where someone may need help and provide guidance where needed. Coursework that may be required in this program includes development counseling, group counseling, post-secondary college and career counseling, counseling skills, social and cultural diversity, and children and youth in school and family systems.

A school counseling degree should give graduates the skills they need to enter the field of counseling. Most graduates have highly effective listening, communications, analytical and leadership skills. These skills can give them a leg up in their job search.

Program costs for a master’s degree vary depending on the field of study, school’s location and student’s time commitment. Students should try to contact their school of interest to better understand costs.

Those who graduate with a Master’s in School Counseling should be able to find work in elementary, middle or high schools in both public and private settings. Graduates may also be able to find work in higher education. Potential career choices include school counselor, career counselor, clinical supervisor, community educator or private counseling. With time spent on the job and additional certification, graduates should have no problem rising to higher paying positions, particularly if they choose to work under a private practice or in a senior counselor role.
