I thrive in smaller groups

I thrive in smaller groups

and I prefer a learning environment where I can deeply explore and unpack different theories and perspectives with others. Knowing that I have begun to build my professional network, of both up-and-coming and seasoned counselors alike, excites and reassures me as I look to the future ~ Kawika Huston (MEd '19)

Collaborative Cohort

The MEd cohort model creates an interactive environment in which learning happens with and from colleagues. You are supported to foster community and creativity, build counseling skills, and encourage collaboration within and across various settings.

Candidate Centered

An intentionally small cohort and student–to–instructor ratio allow faculty to focus on your individual professional growth within a shared cohort learning experience. Your unique development as a school or mental health counselor is our focus throughout your master’s program.

Strong Bonds

You and your MEd colleagues spend time together in university classrooms developing skills and then have an opportunity to discuss, apply, and process your experiences in local mental health agencies and schools. In all of these contexts you learn together and create deeper connections to each other and the work you engage as counselors and health and human services professionals.

Professional Network

For many, cohort relationships extend well-beyond the MEd academic years. Colleagues stay connected and continue supporting each other and networking about counseling dilemmas, professional development, and employment opportunities.
