MASTER OF SCIENCE IN COUNSELING
Counselor Education at Creighton is designed to meet the needs, at the master's level, of those interested in various counseling roles and student development services (student personnel!) As such, the program is divided into areas of specialization with each designed to develop the competencies demanded of an individual embarking on a career in one of these areas. Such individuals usually are employed by school systems employment services, colleges or community agencies. To be employed in a school system, a counselor must be certified by a state department of education. In many states, counselor certification demands a teaching certificate and evidence of at least two years of successful teaching experience. It also should be noted that potential employers frequently impose additional requirements above those needed for certification, e.g., teaching experience within that system.
