Accelerated Master’s in School Counseling

Contact the CASAL department to be added to the COHORT

Cleveland State University is offering an accelerated program (22 months) that is designed for the full-time professional teacher or students with background in education. The accelerated School Counseling master’s will be mostly face-to-face courses that utilize a “flipped-classroom” format. Short video lectures plus reading are done before class. Less time is spent in class but the time in class is devoted to application of the video/lecture material in a problem-finding; problem-solving format.

If you have ever desired a Master’s degree in School Counseling now is an excellent time to pursue one in Cleveland State University’s CACREP-approved School Counseling program. On July1st 2020, all School Counseling programs will move from 48 to 60 hours. If you are accepted into a program and begin by June 30th 2020, you will be grand-parented to licensure.
