A Guide to Getting a Master's in Counseling


About this Guide

Counseling is a growing field. Jobs in counseling are projected to increase by 30 percent over the next 10 years, thanks in part to increased awareness and acceptance of tending to mental health. If you are considering a career as a professional counselor, you will need
at least a master’s degree in counseling and, depending on your interests, might want to consider a PhD as well. This guide is to help you take a closer look at the counseling profession and will help you decide whether to pursue an advanced degree in counseling.
