William & Mary’s first cohort for the Online Master of Education in Counseling entered the program in August 2018, and we are extremely proud of this inaugural group’s great diversity: in ethnicity, career field and professional history. While diversity has long been a hallmark of all W&M schools and programs, it seems particularly significant in a program that has been built on the principles of social justice, cultural competence and cultural sensitivity. We believe cohort diversity in the Online M.Ed. in Counseling will help to challenge prevailing ideas and provide greater perspective when exploring how to best support individuals, families and communities within different contexts and of different means.
Take a look at the numbers from our most recent cohort, and consider how your own counseling studies could benefit from the insight and experience of a diverse peer group like this one.
With William & Mary’s dynamic learning management system, you can connect with your cohort peers and program faculty to bring your program experience to life, and stay connected to our Social Justice Dashboard for focused professional development. View the Online Experience
