Counselor Education Master’s Program

Counselor education.

Master’s Program

Department of Educational Psychology

Ranked by U.S. News and World Report as 12th among publics, 15th overall, the Counselor Education master’s degree (M.Ed.) program is designed to effectively and efficiently meet the increasing demand for counselors in educational and community settings. Our primary focus is the rigorous study of education, psychology and counseling, and preparing students to work in schools and universities. Graduates of our program will be prepared to:

  • Pursue employment as academic advisers, career counselors and student affairs officials in colleges and universities
  • Pursue doctoral studies in counseling psychology or other related fields
  • Pursue certification as a Licensed Professional Counselor or School Counselor (with additional requirements / coursework).

Many required courses are offered during the day or every other year. We encourage students to enroll full-time to maximize their ability to immerse themselves in the academic and experiential learning experiences available while training.

An exciting part of our program is the applied work during practicum placements. We have developed relationships with local school districts and universities to ensure that our students have optimal opportunities to train for future work in academic settings. 

We are committed to counseling excellence through scholarship, self-reflection, collaboration and practical experience. We encourage leadership and advocacy in making system-level changes on campuses to promote success for students in today’s schools. 

Students and faculty work together in a learning community dedicated to advancing the field of counseling by adhering to the professional and ethical standards promoted by the American Counseling Association and American School Counselor Association. We foster the belief that learning continues beyond graduation through participation in research and membership in professional organizations.

Subject Concentrations

The program has two concentrations of study:  Higher Education Counseling & Student Affairs  and  School Counseling . Students in the School Counseling concentration are trained to become K-12 school counselors in public and private schools. Graduates with a Higher Education concentration work in a variety of student affairs roles in institutions of higher education.

Higher Education Counseling & Student Affairs

The  Higher Education Counseling & Student Affairs  concentration prepares graduates to enter the dynamic world of student affairs and higher education in a pluralistic society. Counselors in higher education settings can contribute to the academic, social and emotional growth of students across campus through many different roles. Examples of these roles for promoting intellectual and personal growth include but are not limited to:

  • Transition counselors in programs to help high school students prepare for college
  • Academic advisors for programs or colleges
  • Counselors in a college counseling center
  • Career counselors helping students explore the connection between education and the world of work
  • Counselors or supervisors for residential life
  • Counselors in special retention programs through the dean’s office
  • Teachers of first year seminars to facilitate first year students’ transitions
  • Instructors in community colleges
  • Counselors for international students
  • Counselors in study abroad programs
  • Internship coordinators to facilitate matching students with internships
  • Counselors for services for students with disabilities
  • Educators to promote activities and seminars to promote student adjustment and growth
  • Counselors in student judicial services
  • Culturally informed advocates and consultants
  • Orientation coordinators
  • Program specialists to address issues facing college students including topics such as relationships, substance abuse, and sexuality

Our students gain an understanding of human development that informs their interventions for both students who are emerging adults or non-traditional students. We also provide students with the awareness, knowledge, and skills for understanding dynamics of culture to work with administrative systems, small groups, and individuals to foster an environment that embraces different identities, experiences and backgrounds. Students will gain skills in both prevention and intervention to reach the vast number of students on a college campus. They will examine their role as a consultant and evaluator of services. While studying at UT, our students have employment and practicum placements at UT. Historically our students do practicum in other colleges in the metropolitan area including Austin Community College, St. Edward’s University, Texas State University, and Huston-Tillotson University.

For many of the roles in higher education, neither licensure nor certification is required.  We encourage our graduates to pursue licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (see “Licensure” section below for more information).  Professional identity is maintained through association with professional organizations such as American Counselor Association, American College Counseling Association, and the American College Personnel Association.

School Counseling

Educational Psychology is not accepting master’s program applications to the School Counseling concentration for fall 2024.

Counselor Education students in the  School Counseling  concentration meet the course requirements for applying to become certified school counselors in the State of Texas. The requirements for program completion as outlined by the Texas Administrative Code  Chapter 228  have informed the program’s graduate course work. In the past five years, 100% of our school counseling graduates passed the TExES school counseling certification exam.

Students in the  School Counseling  concentration learn about their role as a leader within a data-driven comprehensive, developmental school counselor program as supported by the  Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs  and the  ASCA National Model®. 

The School Counseling concentration provides students with the highly specialized knowledge and skills required for placements as school counselors in public or private elementary, middle, or high school settings. Preparation is designed to enable students to deliver counseling services to schools and their extended communities. Students are trained to apply principles of learning, human development, counseling, research, and measurement within the schools in order to serve the educational, personal, social, and career development of culturally different students in schools.

Graduates of the School Counseling program are able to:

  • Apply broad base of learner-centered knowledge to promote the educational, personal, social, and career development of students
  • Participate in the development of a campus that promotes learners’ knowledge, skills, motivation, and personal growth, based on the  Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs
  • Promote academic success for all learners by acknowledging, respecting, and responding to different identities, experiences and backgrounds

Teaching experience is not required for admission to, or completion of, the School Counseling program, but is  highly encouraged . Working towards a teacher certificate or as a teacher while completing the program can be difficult to manage for full-time students, as many required courses are offered during the day. Most students work as teachers before entering the program, and others complete this requirement after finishing the program. See “Licensure” section below for more information about School Counselor Certification.

Applicants should clearly indicate in their Statement of Purpose the type of setting in which they plan to work. If experience as a teacher will be necessary and the applicant does not have teaching experience, the applicant should clearly indicate in the Statement of Purpose how the applicant plans to acquire that experience.

The Counselor Education program, in which the School Counseling concentration is offered, is housed in the Department of Educational Psychology. The department has consistently been ranked in the top 10 Educational Psychology programs by U.S. News and World Report; as of 2019, the department is ranked 5 th  in the nation.

Required coursework for previous and subsequent years may vary. Current students should always defer to their Program of Work for course requirements and consult with their faculty advisor / Graduate Advisor for any needed clarifications.

The Counselor Education program in the Department of Educational Psychology offers two concentrations: Higher Education Counseling and School Counseling. Both concentrations require courses in the history of counseling, modalities, and skills of counseling, career development, human development, assessment, research, and multicultural competence. The curriculum consists of coursework and practicum experiences for counseling in educational settings. Workshops and informal seminars are provided along with the more structured curriculum for student and faculty professional growth.

Program Goals

As Counselor Educators in the Educational Psychology Department at The University of Texas at Austin, we are committed to providing graduates with knowledge necessary to provide effective, evidence-based prevention and intervention services in academic settings in a pluralistic society. Our curriculum addresses the following components:

  • Developing a professional identity as a counselor and knowledge of the ethical mandates of the profession.
  • Developing the awareness, knowledge and skills essential for competence in multicultural counseling and program development in educational settings.
  • Utilizing a developmental perspective for applying evidence-based prevention and intervention programs on campuses.
  • Applying models of career assessment and development to ensure a link between the world of school and the world of work.
  • Understanding models of helping skills at multiple levels on a campus including wellness and prevention programming, counseling and consultation.
  • Developing group counseling skills to facilitate groups in the promotion of student success and social-emotional learning.
  • Understanding assessment principles to select, administer and interpret appropriate assessment strategies on campuses, as well as to interact with assessment professionals in the community.
  • Understanding principles guiding research and program evaluation in counselor education to enhance their ability to provide evidence-based services in schools and institutions of higher education.

Accreditation

Although NOT accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), the core competencies described above have been influenced by those developed by this Council.

The Counselor Education curriculum in Educational Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin meets the educational requirements for licensure as an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and for certification as a School Counselor in the State of Texas.

As counselor educators, we place a high priority on the development of cultural competence in our faculty and students. We stress the importance of developing personal awareness of one’s own culture and one’s biases which may stem from experiences in a society that has perpetuated inequities based on group membership.

We, therefore, provide training, experiences and practice that help all members of our learning community develop knowledge and skills to provide counseling that meets the needs of all of our clients. We support the American Counseling Association Ethics Code that states, “Counselors do not condone or engage in discrimination based on age, color, culture, disability, ethnic group, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, or socioeconomic status” (ACA Ethics Code, A.2).

We recognize that becoming culturally competent is a life-long process and encourage our faculty and students to maintain a focus on cultural competence throughout their careers. We promote a commitment to addressing inequities within our educational settings and the educational systems in which our graduates will be working.

Counselor Education typically receives between 60 to 80 applications each year and invites about 25 students to interview, with the final class is comprised of 18 to 21 students divided evenly between the school counseling and higher education concentrations. Students will typically be notified that they are being invited to interview in the middle of March, with interviews held during late March or early April.

While visiting during interview day is strongly encouraged, telephone or Skype interviews are available for students unable to travel to UT. There is not a minimum GRE or GPA requirement, although students with weakness in this or any other area would need to show outstanding performance in other application criteria in order to be given serious consideration.

Selection of admitted students is based on multiple factors including GRE scores, undergraduate grades, letters of recommendation, personal statement, demonstrated research interest, apparent match between student goals and program goals, and of other characteristics including intellectual curiosity, tenacity, open-mindedness, interpersonal sensitivity, and integrity.

Licensure & Certifications

Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) Certification

Students entering the Counselor Education program in the 2021 academic year will complete a minimum of 60 hours of graduate course work making them eligible for the Master’s of Education (M.Ed.) in Educational Psychology with a specialization in Counselor Education. Students interested in pursuing licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas may apply for an initial LPC license, and take the National Counselor Exam and the Texas Jurisprudence Exam. With a passing score on both exams, an initial license is issued by the State of Texas, after which the applicant must complete 3000 clock-hours of supervised post-graduate counseling internship under the supervision of a board-approved supervisor.

For additional information about the requirements to become a Licensed Professional Counselor, please consult the  Texas State Board’s website . 

School Counselor Certification

Counselor Education students in the School Counseling concentration meet the course requirements for applying to become certified school counselors in the State of Texas.

Note: in the State of Texas, two years of teaching experience is required to apply for school counselor certification. This requires a minimum of 2 years full-time work as instructor of record in a public, charter, or regionally-accredited program.

Applicants seeking further clarification of the state requirements for teaching experience for school counselors are encouraged to consult the Texas Administrative Code,  Chapter 239.20 , which details state requirements for certifying school counselors. For information about how to become a certified teacher in Texas, please consult the  Texas Education Agency’s website .

Using an executive-learning format, students earn their degree while maintaining their full-time employment by attending two years of monthly weekend classes and one week of intense study each of the two summers. After graduating from the two-year program, students will be prepared for such careers as school counselors, college and career counselors, or mental health counseling professionals who work in schools, colleges, community agencies, or hospitals.

Please note that the program offers a part-time option for Penn employees only.

The program is built on the faculty's contention that school and mental health counseling need to be better integrated in order to best serve children, youth, and their families, particularly those who present complex needs in both school and community settings.

Our cohort model program allows students to work closely with their peers through a sequentially structured curriculum of courses and field training. The instructional methods include an inquiry-based approach, engaged scholarship, and problem solving within context. Supervised field experiences are integral to the program. 

To learn more about this program and its requirements, please download our supplemental manual .

For course descriptions, visit the  School and Mental Health Counseling M.S.Ed. program in the University Catalog .

Field Placements

A two-semester field placement during each year in the program provides the opportunity for students to learn and practice counseling skills in a professional and supportive environment. Students are matched with placements from our online site placement database of high-quality training sites, including mental health centers, schools, hospitals, and colleges. Students receive supervision both on-site and in a small seminar group format.

  • In Year I, the Practicum placement requires a total of 100 hours in the field, usually a site commitment of 5 hours weekly.
  • In Year II, the Internship placement requires 600 hours in the field, based on the student's choice of program emphasis. This commitment is approximately 20 hours per week over the course of the year.
  • Students who are currently teachers or work in a mental health-related site and wish to use their place of employment for the field training must secure approval both from their employers and the counseling program placement coordinator.

The School and Mental Health Counseling master's program meets one weekend per month throughout the year (except for June, in which there is no meeting). Friday classes start at 3:00 PM and end at 9:00 PM. On Saturdays, classes start at 8:30 AM and end at 6:00 PM. Sunday classes begin at 8:30 AM and end at 3:30 PM.

In addition to the monthly weekend sessions, the program also has a nine-day intensive summer session. Summer session classes start at 8:30 AM and end at 6:00 PM, with meal breaks in between the classes. Please note that all students must begin the program in the summer session.

Licensure & Certification Information

State counseling licensure & national counseling certification.

Currently, toward the end of their second year in the program, students sit for the  National Counselor Exam (NCE)  or the  National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Exam (NCMHCE) , which the program administers at Penn GSE. Passing the NCE exam grants students the status of eligibility as a PA Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC) once their 3,000 * hours of post-master’s supervised counseling work is completed. The NCC credential signals to licensing boards and employers that the program from which the student has graduated has been approved by a national credentialing board. The NBCC defines the credential as such: “National Certified Counselors (NCC) are board certified counselors who offer the highest standards of practice because they have met stringent education, examination, supervision, experience, and ethical requirements.” However, the NBCC has recently made changes to this program, so the last application cycle for our students will be the fall of 2026. Following this date, students will sit for their licensure exam after graduation but without the NCC designation.

* Each state has its own licensing requirements so please check with your state board for both the internship licensing requirements and exact number of required post-master's hours.

State School Counselor Certification: PreK-12

Toward the end the program, students sit for the PRAXIS School Counselor Exam (5422). Students can choose from a variety of testing sites both in and out of Pennsylvania. Students who pass this exam and complete all the coursework and internship requirements are eligible for certification as an Elementary and Secondary (PK-12) School Counselor (Education Specialist I) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and can be certified as PreK-12 school counselors. Students living outside of Pennsylvania are well positioned to earn similar certification in other states but must confirm their state’s requirements in advance of their internship field experiences.

Graduate Certificate Program: Restorative Justice Practices and Trauma-Informed Care

This is a 12-unit online program with 4 required courses. All 12 units of the advanced certificate courses transfer to the Master of Arts Education (Counseling) Degree.

Fall (First Semester)

Csp 612: restorative practices and conflict transformation..

There is growing recognition supported by new legislation in the United States that schools and communities need to move away from suspending, expelling or incarcerating children, youth and adults as the first effort to change behavior. Today there is a determined effort to move towards more restorative ways of responding to people who are in crisis and whose behavior negatively affects others. This course will focus on the history, concepts, principles and theory of restorative practices. This course will compare retributive and restorative ways of working and support professionals in developing a trauma informed lens in working with youth, families, communities, and colleagues. Students will explore the effectiveness of restorative practices and conflict transformation in schools and their community. This course will focus on restorative tools to engage people in building strong relationships and empathy for one another. Students will learn the main restorative structures including community building circles, restorative conferences to address high level incidences, and effective communication techniques. This course will explore different types of restorative circle processes and the psychology behind the circle. Attention will be paid to the role of caring for ourselves while providing support for others. Skill building activities will include practicing non-violent communication, building consensus, creating safe space, and identifying barriers to connection and healing.

CSP 652: Trauma-Informed Care in Multicultural Contexts.

“Trauma” has recently become a familiar term in our social rhetoric. It has become important for professionals and para-professionals working in our communities to understand the impact of trauma in relation to the biopsychosocial well-being of an individual. In addition, it is essential to understand the complex ripple effects of trauma on children, adolescents, the family unit and educators in the schools and in our wider community. Due to the high rates of trauma occurring on a macro-level scale within national and international contexts as well as the continued high rates of micro-level conflicts and interpersonal trauma experiences, it has become critical for those working in the front lines to understand what trauma is, what kind of impact it has on multiple levels of our lives, and how to identify and effectively respond. This course is designed to lay the foundation for understanding trauma and its complexities and to start a dialogue of learning, understanding, and recovering as trauma-informed restorative practitioners.

CSP 636: Mental Health Recovery.

Mental health recovery is a new field driven by the needs of the consumer, rather than the expectations and recommendations of mental health professionals. This emerging consumer led movement has profound effects on how effective mental health services are delivered and demands a completely new approach for how mental health professionals engage with people suffering from severe mental illness. The practice of mental health recovery is creating a new context for understanding the relational power dynamics between client and mental health specialist. Through the evaluation of these contexts, students will be able to explore the tools of mental health professionals as social constructs, such as the Diagnostics and Statistical Manual (DSM), and the power that is given to these tools within our society and mental health communities. This course is aimed to understand the etiology of mental health treatment, the role of the DSM-V, and the effects on identity that these systems engender in consumers of mental health treatment.

CSP 639: Law and Ethics in the Counseling Profession.

This course will review the ethical standards and legal mandates of the counseling profession. Students will apply code of ethics and legal mandates to specific counseling situations in diverse contexts such as schools and social service agencies. Students will identify and employ professional guidelines for a variety of positions such as: clinical counselors, community mental health case workers, marriage & family therapists and guidance/school counselors. Multicultural perspectives, diversity issues, and awareness of personal values in decision making will inform the context of class discussions and activities.

Master's Program: Master of Arts Education (Counseling)

This is a 30-unit online/hybrid program. After completing the 12-unit advanced certificate program in the Fall semester, students continue with the following coursework.

CSP 600: Cross Cultural Counseling and Communication.

This course begins with the assumption that our personal lives, inclusive of our histories, culture, language, and experiences, shape our everyday interactions as well as our professional behavior. Students will review foundational ideas about interpersonal communications and relational ethics that are relevant in the counseling profession. They will examine their lives and stories, including their cultural contexts, values, beliefs, and emotional experiences, and consider how they may constrain or enhance relationships and therapeutic practices.

CSP600L: Cross Cultural Counseling Skills Laboratory.

This course is designed to be the lab practice component of the CSP 600 course. Students will be given the opportunity during lab to explore key concepts and skills that support a social constructionist approach to counseling. These concepts and skills are culturally informed and support a socially responsible approach to beginning counseling practice. Over the 3 day intensive, students will review a range of client-centered relational practices and counseling skills and will have an opportunity to practice them with your peers during the face-to-face experience.

CSP 673: Public/Private Policy and Counseling.

This course explores the sociopolitical and policy considerations of the counseling field. The course aims to engage students to critically evaluate the impacts of public and private policy on service providers, clients, and the larger community. This course reviews the role of public and private policy in delivery of counseling services, the role of counselors as advocates in public policy issues impacting their field and or clients, and empowering clients to influence and form public policy as a counseling intervention. Furthermore, this course explores the role of social justice, activism, and community involvement in empowering clients towards preferred changes.

CSP 672: Multidisciplinary Facilitation.

This course examines social constructionist, Foucauldian and intersectional feminist approaches to multidisciplinary group facilitation in counseling and educational contexts. Students will explore multiple perspectives on team-based knowledge production, collaborative leadership, and on how organizations conceptualize and practice interprofessional collaboration across a variety of settings such as educational systems, mental health settings, social services and health care. Moreover, the systematic and discursive effects of race-ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and culture on counseling and educational professional teams and their effects on community development will be examined.

CSP 637: Counseling and MFT Theories I.

This course offers a critical review of contemporary counseling theories through the lens of social constructionist and postmodern philosophies. Students will gain a foundational understanding of Humanistic, Experiential, Cognitive-Behavioral, Intergenerational, and Family Systems therapy. Students will analyze the historical and social contexts from which theories were developed, and the implications for how practitioners conceptualize identity, change, and family systems posited by these theories. This course draws upon theories developed within the discipline of Marriage and Family Therapy and explores their relevancy within multicultural contexts.

ED 690: Research Methods of Inquiry.

This course is designed to provide graduate students an introduction to educational and psychological-relational research. It is intended to enable students to become critical evaluators of educational and psychological-relational research and provides an overview of (a) the historical and philosophical context of research, (b) library literature searches/reviews, (c) quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods, (d) basic concepts in research design, analyses, and interpretation, (e), basic descriptive and inferential statistics and (f) the influence of culture on the design, implementation and evaluation of applied research.

CSP 638: Counseling and MFT Theories II.

Ed 795a: capstone..

This course provides students with an integrated learning experience in which coursework taken throughout the program of study (e.g. research coursework, theories and techniques of counseling, etc.) is synthesized and culminates in the completion of a final project that demonstrates graduate level research, writing, and scholarship skills. Students will complete a Capstone Project which demonstrates their learnings throughout the entire MA program.

The objective of this course is to facilitate the synthesis of learning by directly applying understandings to professional practice. Students will reflect, write, research and imagine their future professional plans. This process will include asking critical questions about the student’s theoretical orientation, case conceptualization, assessing counseling practices, reviewing academic literature, analyzing and generating meaning from data, and moving from consumer to creator of new knowledge.

Who is the program designed for?

These programs (the M.A. and certificate programs) are designed for local and international students who are: entering the social services field as recent graduates with a bachelor’s degree; those interested in changing careers and wanting to explore the field of counseling; and for professionals who are already working in the field and want to expand their knowledge and credentials.

The program structure allows students to continue working since courses are offered online. We engage with a diverse student body that will contribute to each other's learning process.

This program is not a licensure-track program and does  not prepare students for Pupil Personnel Service (PPS).

What are the admission requirements? How do I increase my chances of being accepted into the 30-unit M.A. Education (Counseling) Program?

The M.A. program requires a Bachelor's degree. TOEFL results are needed for international students from non-English speaking countries.

It is difficult to name a singular way of being "successful" in being accepted to the program. Applicants are considered within a constellation of skills and knowledges they bring forward in their application, including but not limited to past academic performance, demonstration of relational skills and ethics, multicultural understandings, reflexivity in understanding self, relational skills, an interest in academic and theoretical understandings of mental health, counseling, and education. Becoming familiar with our program philosophy and mission is also helpful, as it also shows us your intention in joining our program.

When does the M.A. Education (Counseling) Program begin, and how is the program structured?

What is the class schedule.

The M.A. in Counseling (Education) is a 1-year program offered mostly online. There are 2 face-to-face classes, structured as workshop intensives:

  • CSP 600L Cross-Cultural Counseling  (1 unit) Students have the choice of attending on July 17, 18  & 19, 2020 or on July 24, 25 & 26, 2020; 8:30 a.m. -to 5 p.m. (Face-to-face delivery)
  • CSP 672/673 Multidisciplinary Facilitation and Public Policy  (3 units) March 20, 21 & 22, 2020; 8:30 a.m. to 5 pm. (Face-to-face delivery) While courses are situated within the traditional semester system, our program is designed to scaffold your learning and provide "intensive" periods where you focus on one course, to provide more flexibility and focus in your course. Therefore, while a class does run the entire semester, you may find yourself working on one class for a period of 2-3 weeks at a time. The expected study time is 15 to 18 hours per week. Class work can be completed at the time that best suits the student. Go to the Courses tab to see the complete listing of required program coursework.

Can I attend the program and work?

Since it is a hybrid program, how much face-to-face time is expected on campus, and what is expected in the on-campus experience, what are career opportunities like, post-graduation what are the best ways to find a job.

We find that employment for students post-graduation is available. Students are encouraged to make connections throughout their graduate experience and connect with faculty and site resources for possible employment opportunities. Graduate students optimize their chances for employment post graduation by immersing themselves in short-fieldwork experiences. Faculty are well connected in the community, and there are multiple partnerships with the program and large community providers. While an internship is not required as part of your graduating criteria, you will be provided with multiple internship and volunteer opportunities that we highly recommend engaging with.

Graduates with the MA (Counseling) 30 unit program have historically been highly successful in gaining professional roles in the community including advising in community colleges, taking positions as behavior specialists, case managers, working in specialized mental health services, drug & alcohol services and elementary, middle and high school settings.

Can I transfer courses from the certificate program to the master's degree program?

In what ways does this program help prepare me to transition into a ph.d. program.

The M.A. 30-unit program offers classes that focus on both qualitative and quantitative research methods to help prepare students in the area of research. Students will also be required to take a 3-unit seminar course that includes a research component.  This can help students build on these research experiences that can begin the preparation for doctoral work. Students are able to explore different options, and have questions answered, including identifying differences between the Ph.D., Ed.D and Psy.D.

Additionally, a high level of reading and writing is required throughout the program, and faculty work with students to encourage, maintain, and support a high level of writing that is expected from Master's students.

Are the online M.A. program units transferable to other master's programs (specifically to licensure Master's program for MFT, MSCW, or LPCC program)?

  • Transferring in: Students cannot transfer courses from a previously awarded Master's to a new Master's degree.
  • Transferring out: It is up to the discretion of the other program you are attempting to transfer our program units to. The program or department you are interested in transferring into may choose to not have students repeat content. In some cases, they can waive the course to help prevent the student from repeating the same course , but each student would still need to make up the units required for the degree.
  • Tuition cost The M.A. 30-unit cost is approximately $15,000, however, unit prices are subject to change. Visit the Office of Admissions   Estimated Cost of Attendance   page for the latest information.
  • Financial aid All courses are eligible for Financial Aid. Contact the SDSU Financial Aid Office and speak to a financial aid officer familiar with loans for special programs.

What is a Good Master’s Degree for Teachers Seeking Career Growth?

People drawn to the teaching profession are caring, creative, and intelligent communicators. Did you know that teachers perform mental gymnastics all day while they lecture, set up projects, walk groups through an activity, or plan lessons? Teachers make over 1,500 decisions daily , and most educators feel that estimate is even low.

Teachers’ rigorous brain workout is a constant exercise of control and classroom leadership. Without a leader’s attitude, any classroom can quickly become a disorganized, unruly disaster. Throughout their early classroom assistant experiences, internships, and bachelor’s degree programs, aspiring teachers practice how to think fast, act, and lead groups of people. With a master’s degree focused on teacher leadership, educators can hone their skills further and promote teacher career growth.

Choosing a Smart Master’s Degree for Teachers

No one decides to become a teacher because it is easy. They choose this career path because they love the challenges a classroom presents, appreciate education, and want to make a positive impact on other people’s lives. There are many graduate degree options available for teachers who seek career growth, such as:

  • Master’s of Arts in Teaching
  • Master’s of Science in Education
  • Master’s in Special Education
  • Master’s in Curriculum and Instructional Design
  • Master’s in Teacher Leadership

Most of these degrees are perfect for teachers who want to learn everything there is to know about teaching a specific subject. For example, Master of Science in Education degrees are typically specialized by subject, such as an MS. Ed in English, Science, or Social Studies. The Master’s in Special Education and Master’s in Curriculum and Instructional Design are also specific to a student population or area of expertise. A Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is both hands-on and theoretical, and coursework is grounded in teaching pedagogy. MAT programs are often specialized for specific stages in a child’s learning development, such as Early Childhood (birth to four years old), Elementary Education (Kindergarten through sixth grade), and Secondary Education (high-school levels).

However, the best choice for teachers open to variable advancement options in education, inside and outside the classroom, is the Master’s in Teacher Leadership.

Career Options for Teachers with a Master’s Degree

An M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership opens doors to exciting teacher leadership positions that may surprise you. Those careers might be in the classroom, an adult training center, or administrative or executive office, to name a few environments. M.Ed. teacher leadership careers include:

  • Career counselor
  • Corporate trainer
  • Curriculum Specialist
  • Educational administrator
  • Educational consultant
  • School principal
  • Special education teacher
  • University professor

Thinking of education beyond the classroom expands not just the options of the population that an educator could work with, but also their potential salary.

Embracing Diversity with a Master’s Degree Education

A great teacher leadership program attracts educators of all types, which adds a valuable diversity of perspectives when participating in the program. In this way and others, learner variability is an educational cornerstone to Goodwin University’s M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership. Candidates gain a deeper understanding of methods to promote their own students’ individuality and acknowledge neurological and social differences, which affect the way they learn. This program embraces the Universal Design for Learning framework, through which participants study a curriculum including leadership theory and practice, how to facilitate effective learning environments, employing instructional coaching, and understanding curriculum theory. UDL theory allows educators to meet students, no matter who they are, or where they are at. This is one reason UDL applies to educators who transition from a traditional classroom environment into consulting, counseling, or corporate spaces.

Finding a Career-Minded Master’s in Education

A smart pathway for teacher career growth should not require teachers to take a break from teaching. Depending on how long a teacher has worked at their school and how much education they have obtained, it can be too great of a risk to take extended time off, especially if they wish to return and continue their growth at that institution. These are all reasons why Goodwin University’s M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership is built for working teachers.

Goodwin University’s M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership makes it possible to work full-time while earning a master’s degree for teachers. Plus, qualified applicants can bring up to six credits into the 30-credit program from prior learning, further decreasing the amount of time and investment it will take to earn our M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership. Goodwin University’s program offers superior flexibility by being hosted fully online and can be completed in as few as 15 months while studying part-time. Students benefit from a blend of independent learning and synchronous or virtual classroom time with peers. The cost of our master’s degree for teachers is transparent, with no hidden fees, so you know exactly what kind of investment to plan for. The program is competitively priced with other private non-profit colleges in CT, making it an excellent choice for your future.
