Master of Arts in Counseling
Cohort Program in School Counseling
The Truman State University Master of Arts in School Counseling cohort program is designed so that a group of students will proceed through the entire program together. The cohort program meets two evenings each week and during the summer sessions.
Why should you consider this option?
•You can complete your coursework to become a school counselor while you are employed.
•You can be certified as a school counselor (with additional education coursework) even if you do not have a teaching certificate.
•There is a consistent state-wide demand for school counselors.
•You can complete your school counseling practicum/internships while employed or teaching.
•You can become provisionally certified as a school counselor after only 21 hours of coursework and work as a full-time school counselor while completing your practicum/internships! (this is essentially the same as a paid internship, but you will also be able to count your time as professional job experience on your resume)
The cohort program is limited to approximately 25 students. Qualified applicants are accepted on a first come, first served basis through a monthly review of applicants. Interested students should contact Dr. Christopher Maglio at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
