Program Description

The Program in Psychological Counseling is dedicated to the preparation of psychological counselors who facilitate the normal and optimal development of individuals, groups, and organizations that is culturally relevant and psychologically appropriate across the lifespan. Our students are taught to use strategies of prevention, intervention, and remediation to assist others in developing effective coping skills and responses to their environments. (See Psychological Counseling Program Handbook for more information.) 

The objectives of the program are to prepare students to:

  1. Be self-aware, reflective, and sensitive to social constructions and issues related to identity group membership and to participate in a variety of settings with diverse populations;
  2. Intervene in appropriate arenas through their commitment to education, evaluation, research, and program development;
  3. Focus on the development of individuals and groups, their educations and careers, assets and strengths, the importance of person-environment interactions, psycho-education and preventive needs, as well as their pathologies;
  4. Integrate theory, practice, and research; and
  5.  Develop identities as ethical counselors who are socialized into the profession and contribute to the discipline and to society. Students are expected to adhere to ethical and professional standards of practice and conduct. Academic dishonesty and unethical behavior may be grounds for immediate dismissal from the program (master’s or doctoral). These competencies prepare students to work in a variety of settings with emphasis on educational (e.g., schools, colleges, and universities, etc.), health (e.g., outpatient clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, etc.) and related agencies. In roles as psychological counselors, master’s graduates will be able to apply their skills in school counseling, clinical practice, administration, assessment, and research.

With the help of a faculty advisor, students register for required and elective courses relevant to their special needs and career objectives. Depending on their areas of interest and levels of training, graduates have found employment in colleges, adult education centers, industry, various health centers, and community and government agencies.

Students in the program are expected, by the end of their training, to have the following in common (regardless of their eventual work settings):

  • They are concerned with assessing, facilitating, and guiding individual development. Their focus is on enhancing those conditions which further human development and on ameliorating those that hamper it. They help individuals discover and take advantage of possibilities in the environment and in themselves. They are skilled in working with individuals from diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • They are concerned with the social, situational, and psychological determinants of behavior. They use their theoretical knowledge to bring about growth in individuals and their environments. They are concerned with providing individuals and groups with experiences that will help them achieve their full potential.
  • They are skilled in several modes of facilitating human development, such as short-term individual and group counseling, environmental intervention, and planned exploratory and developmental experiences. They are concerned with translating concepts and theories into strategies and programs of intervention. They not only engage in designing innovative programs and planned interventions; they also evaluate the outcomes of such undertakings.

Degree Requirements

Master of Education (Ed.M.)

The Ed.M. is granted after successful completion of a comprehensive examination, a special project, and 60 points of planned, sequential study beyond the bachelor’s degree, of which at least 48 points must be taken at Teachers College. Approval of transfer credits to the Ed.M. program must be conducted upon admission into the program; transfer credits will not be accepted thereafter. The Ed.M. degree could lead to the doctorate at Teachers College and elsewhere but usually with some loss of time and credits because of differences in emphases between master’s and doctoral programs. Students who apply to the program during or after taking classes at Teachers College as a non-matriculated student can transfer up to 9 points (with a maximum of 8 points in the major) if accepted as a matriculated degree student. Additional information may be found in the Psychological Counseling Program Handbook.

School counseling is one of several areas of specialization within the Ed.M. program in Psychological Counseling (COUS). It is a specialty that allows students to develop appropriate skills to deliver services that are specific to school settings, in addition to learning the essential functions generally found in the counseling profession. A graduate of this specialization is eligible for provisional certification as a School Counselor in New York State after completing the program, including a series of specified courses. Consult the Master’s Student Handbook for more information about the School Counselor specialization. For permanent certification, New York State requires two years of employment as a school counselor and 30 additional credits of graduate work. The credits from the Ed.M. beyond the M.A. will be applied toward the 30. Students planning to obtain New York State Certification in School Counseling use the en passant M.A. to apply for provisional certification. Students should complete the application for certification upon graduation from the M.A. program.
