The School Counseling Program at Emporia State University is one of the best in the Midwest. Since 1947, the university has prepared more school counselors than any other Kansas college or University. More than 40 percent of all practicing school counselors in Kansas have received their degrees from Emporia State University. Based upon retirement projections of current counselors and recent growth rate in elementary school counseling, the employment future for school counselors is positive. Graduates of the School Counseling Program are readily accepted by employers because of the program’s high quality of graduates. Successful completion of the School Counseling Program leads to Kansas licensure, grades PreK through 12. Graduates are qualified to seek employment in elementary, middle, or secondary schools. In school districts small enough to have just one counselor, graduates sometimes accept positions as the counselor for all levels.
