One of the most highly ranked social service careers of 2017 is school counseling.

It is said that school psychologists are happy with their careers, according to College Choice. Along with this, jobs in this field are sustainable, offer opportunities for advancement and are “recession-proof.”

College Choice ranked colleges and universities across the U.S. in the category of best school counseling programs. Among the highest ranked colleges, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Coming in at number 33 of 35 listed, the small, public school was highlighted for offering “a wide selection of graduate programs, such as Arts, Communication, Education, Nursing, and more.” All of which are offered, at least partially, online, said College Choice in their article.

Edinboro was stated as having one of the top programs of 2017 for having a Masters of Arts in Counseling program offered entirely online. Students who enroll in the program can choose one of four tracks to follow; art therapy, clinical mental health and clinical rehabilitation, college counseling or school counseling. All programs are 30 credit hours.

“The small size of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania creates a tight-knit community, both on-campus and at the online level,” College Choice said. “The counseling faculty are not only highly involved in their classes, but they are also leaders in their field and conduct ongoing cutting-edge research in educational trends and counseling theories,” the article continued.
