Ed.M. in Counseling Psychology


Coordinator: Dr. Saundra Tomlinson-Clarke (732-932-7496, ext. 8305; email: smaria@rci.rutgers.edu)

Master's degree students interested in the counseling program must choose one of two options: (1) the 33-credit program in counseling psychology which is described below or (2) the 48-credit program in school counseling which leads to the NJ School Counselor Educational Services Certification. The 48-credit school counseling program is described in the catalog section that covers certification programs.

The 33-credit program in counseling psychologyprovides students with the opportunity to explore the professional specialty of counseling psychology and to demonstrate competence in graduate level courses required as background for doctoral-level study. The 33-credit degree does not include clinical practice, rather it is intended to provide a strong base of study preparatory to doctoral training. A minimum of a doctoral degree is required for a student interested in pursuing a career as a psychologist. The program in counseling psychology requires a minimum of:

1. 9 credits in counseling psychology, typically 15:297:501 Introduction to Counseling Psychology; 15:297:505 Group Psychology; 15:297:507 Multicultural Issues; or 15:297:510 Vocational Psychology.

2. 9 credits in basic educational psychology, typically one course in each of the following areas: human development, learning and cognition, or personality.

3. 9 credits of educational statistics and measurement.

4. 6 credits of electives, typically in counseling psychology or basic psychology.
