School Counseling (SC) Major

The School Counseling program leads to the possibility of a State of Idaho Pupil Personnel Services Certificate with endorsement as a Standard School Counselor K-12. This counseling program area is designed to prepare the individual to plan and deliver a comprehensive school counseling program founded on a broad base of knowledge and practical skills and based upon the ASCA National Standards.

Applicants need not be certified K-12 teachers. The development of the person of the counselor as well as acquisition of theory and skills necessary to succeed in a school environment are central to the program. Communication and consultation skills, as well as technology, multicultural counseling, and program evaluation are emphasized in the program.
