Georgia State University’s College of Education & Human Development has launched the UrbanEd Podcast. This podcast is intended for prospective graduate students wanting insights into how the College moves the lives of children and adults forward in education, human development and health-related fields.

Every week, the podcast will feature interviews of the College’s alumni, faculty, staff and key stakeholders regarding a variety of topics, including urban education, careers in the helping professions, cutting edge research, and grant projects and initiatives.

Here is a selection of podcasts featuring alumni of the Master of Education in School Counseling program in the Department of Counseling and Psychological Services discussing the School Counseling Master of Education (M.Ed.) Program. The School Counseling program trains and prepares students to deliver a comprehensive school counseling program at K-12 schools.
