599 Master’s Project

Final written project based on student research and internship experience. Students with School Counseling emphasis will complete a project on an aspect of school counseling theory, practice, and/or research. In the practice of Alfred Adler, the Research Paper must serve some form of Social Interest, that is, it must address an issue of importance to an actual school or district. The project will provide the student with an opportunity to: 1) identify an area of interest in school counseling; 2) review academic research related to the issue; 3) interpret and evaluate the material; 4) report the findings in a professional format; and 5) provide recommendations or suggestions concerning the identified issue. For the Career Development Emphasis Area, the Master’s Project will include a field study.
