Welcome to Counselor Education
The Counseling Program at Wayne State University is proud to be one of the oldest Counseling programs in Michigan. We have many alumni who have gone to illustrious careers as practitioners, educators, leaders, and writers. We hope you will consider joining us. We are also proud of being accredited by a number of accrediting bodies.
Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, through the College of Education, offers three graduate programs in Counseling: a Master of Arts degree, an Education Specialist certificate, and a Doctorate.
The Master of Arts degree program has two specializations, Community Counseling and School Counseling, which are appropriate for counseling work in K-12 school systems and various types of community agencies. Students completing the Community Counseling Specialization may also choose an additional area of interest, which are Rehabilitation and Art Therapy. These areas of interest qualify students to apply for additional certifications or licenses.
In keeping with the urban mission of the University the mission of the Counselor Education program, as part of the College of Education is:
To prepare professional counselors who are knowledgeable in counseling theories and techniques, who can translate counseling theories and current research strategies in to effective practice, who are committed to respecting diversity among all people and who ascribe to the highest ethical standards and practices.
All counseling program courses are offered in the evening hours (4:15-10:15 pm) permitting our working students the opportunity to pursue their educational endeavors. Additionally the counseling program maintains relationships with community settings (i.e. agencies, school, and institutions) where working students can complete the clinical portions of their program while fulfilling employment obligations elsewhere.
