Welcome to the Department of Counseling and College Student Personnel website!

Thank you for visiting the Department of Counseling and College Student Personnel website. Tucked in among lots and lots of programs offered at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania you have located our webpages – which we earnestly hope will fill a wide variety of needs!

Following the links here you will find information for prospective students, information for curious applicants, and information for our students – early in the program of their matriculation, those readying to graduate, and even for those who already have received their Masters but are continuing their education with us.

As the Department Chair and a professor who has been a member of this Department since the summer of 1998, I have witnessed and been a part of lots of changes in the education of counselors and student affairs professionals. Our Department is exceptionally proud of our 50+ year history of preparing professionals to fill an ever burgeoning need in society – An advanced degree in Counseling and College Student Personnel is both a prudent career investment and an incredibly fulfilling experience in professional and personal growth and development.

Welcome. I hope that you will find here what you are looking for. Not only in terms of navigating our newly designed website, but also in motivating you onward in your pursuit of a Master’s degree from Shippensburg University that we believe is second to no other. I welcome you to contact the Department if there are any questions you are left with after your virtual visit with us.

Most sincerely,

 Kurts Signature

Dr. Kurt L. Kraus, NCC, ACS, LPC

Professor and Chair
