Graduates of the M.A. in Counseling with a specialization in School Counseling are recommended to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for a Pupil Personnel Services Credential. Some will seek positions as school counselors and others will work in other settings such as nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, and college and universities. No matter their plans, our students can count on the advice and support of our Counseling faculty and our Career Services counselors for assistance with next steps.
Valuable information on the Pupil Personnel Services Credential can be found at the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Our Credential Analyst assists our students in applying to receive this credential from the state.
