Professional counselors and counselor educators make significant impacts in the lives of their clients and students. From relational concerns to career planning to co-occurring mental health disorders, professional counselors come alongside their clients and aid them in making life-enhancing decisions. Similarly, counselor educators prepare the next generation of professional counselors through their teaching, supervision and scholarly research. If you want to make a substantial difference in people’s lives, consider a graduate degree from our nationally ranked and nationally accredited Counselor Education program at UCF.
Our program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs.
