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.
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
