Department of Education & Counseling

Still thinking about starting graduate school in the fall? There's still time!

We're hosting several virtual information sessions this summer!

At these short information sessions you will learn more about the on-campus graduate programs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Also, if you are a teacher or educator (at a primary or secondary school) you are invited to an information session exclusively for teachers. This event will be held on campus on Wednesday, July 13th from 12:00pm - 2:00pm (click here to register). Learn about our teacher discounts, hear from a panel of current student and alumnae teachers who went through our different master's program, and enjoy lunch!

Register for any of these events HERE!
We hope to see you either online or on-campus this summer.
