Antioch University Announces New Master’s Program In School Counseling

Antioch University has launched a new low-residency degree program: an MA in School Counseling. The program, which will begin in Fall 2024, is available to students living anywhere in the nation, and it aims to address the school counselor shortage by training a new generation of school counselors whose practice is rooted in social justice and antiracist principles. The program prepares students to seek licensure/certification as school counselors, and if chosen and depending on state requirements, meet the requirements for clinical licensure.

Passion for Using Online Education to Reach Underserved Students Leads Mary Ann Short to New Role as Associate Dean

A few years ago, Mary Ann Short called an HR representative to resolve an insurance issue. It was one of those phone calls that you put off, and then on the day you actually make the call, as the phone rings, you prepare yourself for a complex negotiation. To say she was not expecting a life-changing experience would be an understatement.

Cool Course: “Senior Project”

“We’re not reading a book and taking a test on each chapter; we’re talking about how what you’re learning impacts your life,” says Hays Moulton, Chair of Undergraduate Studies for Antioch University’s Online programs.
