Counselors play an important role in helping people of all ages manage trauma, anxiety, stress and more. Our CACREP-accredited counseling program enables graduates to deliver professional counseling services in a clinical mental health or school setting.
The program is distinguished by exceptional in-classroom instruction, a cohort model where students form strong bonds, and both academic knowledge and theory. The experience of closely supervised practicum and internships build competence in counseling skills and in personal growth. Learn more.
OSU-Cascades Master of Counseling program and High Desert ESD are excited to share our new Department of Education grant-funded program: Promoting and Advancing Training of High Desert School Counselors (PATH-SC). This program is intended to increase the number and diversity of qualified school counselors in high-needs, rural K-12 schools by providing financial support for participants and intentional relationship-building and mentoring throughout the program. The Department of Education grant is expected to be renewed annually for five years, resulting in a final PATH-SC eligible cohort in the 2025 application cycle. Learn more.
