Program Description

Prepare students P-12 to accomplish their academic goals through the University of West Alabama’s online Master of Science in Guidance and Counseling. The program is designed to accommodate working professionals, meaning you will be able to move through the program at a rate you find appropriate. From one of the most affordable institutions in the state, you’ll be prepared to customize your schedule to maintain your work and personal commitments.

The program’s curriculum has been created and curated by faculty with extensive experience in the field. As a result, you’ll learn first-hand how to offer advocacy, assessment, evaluation, and a range of counseling services to students.

Importantly, this is not a certification or licensure program, meaning if you wish to move to a position as a mental health school counselor, you will have to complete a separate licensure program. Students should check the requirements of their individual state before deciding to proceed with the program.

Still, the demand for guidance counselors and academic advisors has increased, and many schools aim to provide additional resources for students to ensure scholastic success.
