This certification is granted only to master of education degree candidates in the counseling psychology program. Completing the following sequence of courses fulfills the master's degree course requirements and earns a recommendation for the endorsement for school counselor. The 48-credit program in school counseling will qualify students for a New Jersey School Counselor Educational Services Certification. The 48-credit program prepares school counselors to perform school counseling services with students in preschool through 12th grade. These duties include services such as study and assessment of individual pupils with respect to their status, abilities, interest and needs; counseling with administrators, teachers, students, and parents regarding personal, social, educational and vocational plans and programs; and developing cooperative relationships with community agencies in assisting children and their families. As part of the 48 credits, the school counseling program requires six credits of practicum to be completed in an educational/school setting.
