COUN 6102 - Introduction to Career Counseling♦


(5 cr.)
In today’s unstable economy and fluctuating job market, individuals must contend with a gamut of challenges, including forced early retirement, working past retirement, changing jobs, and seeking further education to start new careers. For these reasons, counselors are often needed to help such individuals work through these issues. Through this course, students are introduced to the career counseling profession, including the history, philosophy, and theoretical foundations. They also explore the scope of practice, credentialing, and other professional issues. Through written assignments and other application-focused activities, students assess theories and issues specific to the career counseling role and consider their future in a professional context.
