Students in the MCoun degree program must complete a major option in addition to the core courses for the degree.  

School Counseling is focused on preparing you to utilize skills in individual and group counseling, consultation and system change, leadership, advocacy and action research to:

  • Deliver comprehensive school counseling program services to all students
  • Increase college-going rates among under-represented populations

This unique and well-established program is now available through Ecampus in a hybrid format to be more accessible to students throughout the Northwest: 50 percent online and 50 percent via classroom meetings held two weekends each term in Salem, Oregon. Learn more.
