Good Counsel



Education in the United States has changed, and the role of school counselors has had to change to meet the demands of a more competitive, complex environment. Today, the DePaul's College of Education offers master’s degree tracks in school counseling, college counseling and student affairs, and clinical mental health counseling. In 2019, all three specialty areas were accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs, a major achievement by a program known for its rigorous pursuit of excellence. Among its many successes, the program boasts two alumni, Kirsten Perry (MEd ’11) and Brian Coleman (MEd ’14), who were named National School Counselor of the Year by the American School Counselor Association in 2018 and 2019, respectively .
