Department of Counseling and School Psychology
To ensure the health and safety of our faculty, students, staff, and surrounding community, UMass Boston will continue to operate in hybrid fashion, with some courses lodged on campus and others—the majority—continuing in remote modality during the fall 2020 semester. Many answers about the campus's response to the coronavirus can be found in our special section.
The Department of Counseling and School Psychology prepares individuals to enter professional roles as mental health counselors, school counselors, school adjustment counselors, and counseling and school psychologists. The content and experiences within our programs are systematically designed to build on the mission of the college and university. We prepare highly qualified, thoughtful, and responsive professionals educated to serve a diverse urban population as mental health counselors, school adjustment counselors, school counselors, and counseling and school psychologists. The department offers three programs at the master’s and/or specialist’s level (mental health, school counseling, and school psychology) and a PhD with a concentration in counseling or school psychology.
We are committed to the following goals for our students. Through training and experience:
- Our students will become knowledgeable and skilled practitioners;
- Our students will become caring, principled, and respectful professionals;
- Our students will become committed agents of change for social justice;
- Our students will become committed reflective and critical thinkers.
