M.S. in Counseling for Higher Education

In today’s rapidly changing world, there is a greater need for student affairs and student services counselors in college/university settings who are knowledgeable, ethical, principled, and compassionate.

We believe that competent counselors working in colleges/universities need to meet the needs of an ever-changing diverse student body and be comfortable discussing issues of race, gender, sexuality, and other types of identity. Our program uses the cultural proficiency model to help students take an inside-out approach to understanding who they are and how their identities inform the ways they work with others across differences.

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.
