Program Description

Our master of arts in counseling program includes a variety of courses, practica, internship and other training experiences which offer comprehensive preparation for professional practice as a school counselor. Course work focuses on human development, psychopathology, research, assessment, theories of counseling, ethical and legal issues as well as individual, group and other school counseling interventions. Training in counseling skills begins in the first semester and an internship usually begins in the second year. This training prepares students to develop and deliver a Comprehensive School Counseling Program, which is aligned with the principles outlined by the American School Counselor Association National Model for School Counseling Programs.

Financial Aid

Most of the scholarships and assistantships that we offer go to doctoral students, but occasionally there are assistantships given to master’s students. Master’s students who are primary and secondary school teachers in southeastern Wisconsin are eligible for two scholarship opportunities: the Milwaukee Area Teachers Scholarship, which provides scholarships for K-12 teachers from the greater Milwaukee area, and the Catholic Schools Scholarship, which covers part of the tuition for students employed by Archdiocese of Milwaukee schools. These scholarships are available only to students enrolled at Marquette. More information is available at the Graduate School's financial aid page.

We will not know the number of assistantships available to next year's students until our admissions offers are sent out during the middle of the spring semester.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible to apply for need-based federal aid (loans) to help fund their educational expenses.
