School Counseling

School counselors achieve professional knowledge, skills, and leadership practices necessary to promote the academic, career, and personal/social development of all P-12 students. Applicants do not need to be certified or experienced teachers. Upon graduation, students are eligible to be certified as a P-12 school counselor and also provisionally licensed as a mental health counselor in Wyoming.

With the belief that we support all children, we focus on equity, social justice, and advocacy for systemic change.

The University of Wyoming-Laramie School Counseling Program is certified by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). This certification creates standards to endure that students develop a professional counselor identity and master the knowledge and skills to practice effectively. CACREP is the major accrediting body for the counseling profession.

Employment Prospects:

Available positions for Counselors are expected to grow 11% from now to 2026, much faster than average for all occupations. Salaries for Professional School Counselors average $54,560.
