"Preparing school counselors and organizational leaders to address an increasingly diverse society is among the most important things that we do at Peabody. As the fields of education and human development continue to evolve and to be affected by rapid advances in technology, we want to take advantage of these opportunities to meet students how, when, and where they are learning," said
The M.Ed. in school counseling will prepare students who want to work as professional school counselors in K-12 settings and meet the needs of the youth they serve. Through a rigorous and humanistic training model, students will develop a strong grounding in theories of human development and counseling practice and will learn to translate that knowledge to become effective school counselors. Graduates of the program will be able to acquire licensure for school counseling in public or private K-12 settings.
Peabody's online Ed.D. in leadership and learning in organizations is designed for experienced mid-career professionals and organizational leaders who currently possess a master's degree. The program will focus significantly on data and analytics and problems of practice to enable students to lead organizational change and drive systemic improvement in academia, government agencies, and the private sector.
