Human Sexuality (MEd) & School Counseling Certificate
In our master of education (MEd) in human sexuality studies and school counseling certificate program , you'll take the inside track to a future as an educator, counselor, and sexuality professional.
In addition to working collaboratively with community educators, teachers, therapists, clinicians, and writers, you will also be trained in social justice education, research methodologies, curriculum development, clinical research, teaching strategies, assessment and intervention, and culturally appropriate program design.
You'll gain hands-on practice experience in either educational or clinical settings, depending on your program track. Field experience is accompanied by a practicum course through which you will receive supervision from a faculty member. Field placements are located where you live, and students who live more than two hours away from campus can attend their practicum class through video conferencing.
Through a practicum placement and a rigorous research-oriented education, you will develop the skills and aptitudes to excel in the field of human sexuality.
With an MEd in human sexuality studies degree and a school counseling certificate from Widener, you'll develop the skills and expertise to excel as a sexuality educator and counselor.
