This program is not currently accepting applications for admission while program faculty re-envision our approach to school counseling and system change. Check back later to learn about the exciting ways we intend to meet the current and future developmental, academic, socio-emotional, career-transitional, and multicultural needs of deaf and hard of hearing school children and their families, as well as the systemic needs of the educational systems that serve them.
The School Counseling Programs (full-time) prepares graduates to be multiculturally competent professional school counselors with the cultural self-awareness, sensitivity, knowledge, and skills essential to becoming effective and ethical practitioners, leaders, and advocates to promote social justice, equity and academic excellence for all deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing students in a variety of K-12 educational settings.
The master's degree consists of a minimum of 75 credit hours and requires two academic years to complete, including the summer between the first and second year of study.
The program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP) and is part of Gallaudet's Educator Preparation Provider Unit, which is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). In addition to the Graduate School Requirements, the school counseling program requires the successful completion of three undergraduate or graduate courses, one each in child, adolescent, or human development; abnormal psychology; and one additional course in psychology (nine hours total).
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
