Program Overview

The College of Education prepares graduate students to assume leadership roles in the areas of study provided by its programs and specializations. The College of Education is made up of two departments: Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology (CECP) and Educational Policy and Leadership (EDPL).

While Marquette University is concerned about the professional advancement of its students, facilitates the process of certification and provides excellent educational opportunities, it cautions that professional success in a chosen field requires, above all else, constant development of individual abilities, personal initiative and a professional sense of responsibility for fulfilling all one’s appropriate legal, ethical and other professional responsibilities. Hence, the university facilitates the licensure process for students pursuing careers in education and other human service fields, but students must also take responsibility for meeting all the requirements for licensure or certification in their chosen fields.
