The mission of the Oregon State University graduate program in counseling is to prepare professional leaders who promote the social, psychological and physical well-being of individuals, families, communities and organizations. We believe that such professional leaders stand for social, economic and political justice and therefore must be prepared to be proactive educators, change agents and advocates in the face of injustice. Professional leaders are sensitive to life span developmental issues, demonstrate multicultural awareness, and recognize a global perspective as integral to the preparation of professional leaders.

There are multiple options for the College of Education Counseling program:

Ecampus (hybrid-online)


The Counseling major is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
