According to the U.S. Government Occupational Outlook Handbook, prospects for employment for school counselors will grow significantly over the next decade as there is an increase in school-aged children. Virtually all graduates of the UT School Counseling program seeking employment are hired within two years of graduation, often in the school district of their choice. School Counselors earn between $30,000 and $60,000 depending on years of experience.
