Graduate Counseling Programs
Hofstra University's graduate programs in counseling are offered by the Long Island, New York campus.
Our programs in School or College Student Development Counseling and Mental Health Counseling prepare individuals to work as professional counselors and human service practitioners in a variety of settings and with a variety of populations across the lifespan. These professional preparation programs are committed to preparing multiculturally-competent practitioners who will be equipped to promote the mental health and personal efficacy of their clients and contribute to the improvement of social and educational systems. Program graduates qualify for work in schools, colleges, business and human service organizations, and their own practice depending on which degree program and specialization track is completed.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that employment of Mental Health Counselors and Substance Abuse Counselors is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations in coming years. O*Net lists employment for Substance Abuse Counselors as having a Bright Outlook.
