Featured Course

EDCG 581: Diverse Perspectives in Education and Culturally Proficient Leadership

This foundational course explores the history of diversity and multicultural education, and introduces the conceptual framework of Cultural Proficiency as a lens for counselors in promoting equitable practices for all students in educational settings.

An exploration of candidates’ self-identity, beliefs and values, and the impact on their roles as counselors, advocates, and leaders in diverse and inclusive educational settings will be conducted.


Cal Lutheran’s program has a heavy emphasis on the interpersonal side of student interaction and I especially appreciated the skills and education I gained in counseling theory and practice.
