A rewarding career with the possibility of promotion may be just a diploma away. By earning a diploma, students graduate with desirable skills that make them highly sought after by employers as well as valuable members in the workplace.

Prospective students may be asking, what is a diploma in counseling? A diploma in counseling can be earned in less than two years of full-time schooling. This educational program qualifies individuals to work in counseling in health care or related special care and client support fields. Courses are offered in human development, learning disabilities, professional ethics, interpersonal communication, and mental health, along with many other topics. These subjects are taught in order to provide graduates with a wide breadth of education that will help prepare them for the challenges they may face while working in the health care industry.

By earning a diploma in counseling, graduates gain excellent communication, organization, and listening skills. They will also understand the importance of working with and supporting their clients in an appropriate yet empathetic manner.

The cost of receiving a diploma in counseling may differ for students depending on each school and their specific tuition rates and fees. Students are encouraged to contact potential schools for current financial information, and to seek out financial aid to help offset the cost of pursuing their education.

With a counseling diploma, many job opportunities are available. Graduates can find employment in the health care field as youth support specialists in juvenile or corrections facilities, as recovery specialists in group homes or other addiction programs, or as marriage and family therapists with public and private counseling firms. Graduates can also work helping students and assisting teachers or school psychologists in an educational setting.
