Counseling Graduate Major (MCOUN, PhD)
This major offers the following option(s):
Available only at OSU-Cascades and via Ecampus.
The mission of the Oregon State University graduate program in counseling is to prepare counseling professionals who promote the social, psychological and physical well-being of individuals, families, communities and organizations. We believe that such professional leaders stand for social, economic and political justice and therefore must be prepared to be proactive educators, change agents and advocates in the face of injustice. Counseling professionals are sensitive to life span developmental issues, demonstrate multicultural awareness and recognize a global perspective as integral to the preparation of counselors and counselor educators.
Two graduate degrees are offered in counseling: the Master of Counseling (MCoun) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The Master of Counseling has two transcript-visible graduate options, Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling. The Counseling PhD degree has a graduate option in Counselor Education.
OSU’s counselor education degree programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The School Counseling graduate option is approved by the Oregon’s Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC).
Major Code: 2970
