Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The program offers courses taught by educators who have a great deal of experience who have had leadership positions in ACA, ASERVIC, and many other prominent organizations in the counseling world. Professors are often available for students with questions and there are many opportunities for learning outside of required courses, such as workshops sponsored by our chapter of Chi Sigma Iota, guest speakers, and our annual UCF Counseling Conference. The program offers training in the basics of counselings, focusing on foundational skills rather than specific theoretical techniques.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

This Graduate Program is ranked as the 7th best in the country. I attended UCF as a undergraduate and loved the school and the faculty. I feel that same about my current program. Everyone is so optimistic and cares for each individual student. They are so well versed in their fields that they have and answer or a direction to head you in with each and every questions. They are understanding and forgiving people and see you as a person. It is truly one of the best experiences I have had in school thus far.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Being a graduate student at the University of Central Florida has been an amazing experience so far, and I am very satisfied with my choice to attend this school. I am a first year student in the Counselor Education program, taking the Mental Health Counseling track. There are not many cons, however, I have attempted multiple times to apply for an assistantship within the school and it is very difficult. I never heard back from any of the staff I emailed and sent my resume to. Unfortunately, due to the heavy workload of the program it is difficult to have a steady income to support my living expenses. The pros of being a graduate student in this program absolutely outweigh the cons. The professors, faculty, peers, and atmosphere all contribute to the reasons I love the school. I have learned valuable information that will help me throughout my career, and have formed many professional relationships that will help me as a student. The program itself consists of a perfect balance of reading, writing, and hands-on activities that will allow me to remember the material and apply it in the future as a working professional.

UCF's program is one of the top ranked programs in the country and has a great brand. This program will not steer you in the wrong direction and will make you very knowledgeable and competitive after graduation.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

The program prepares any student to succeed in the field of counseling as well as covers all requirements for licensure in the field. The only con that I found was that out of state tuition was quite expensive. I would recommend the counseling program at UCF to any interested student.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

UCF's Counselor Education program has a great corps of faculty that care greatly for the success and academic progress of their students. The program affords students lots of opportunities to make connections in the field and to gain experience through internships and the practicum on campus. This program is one of the highest rated in the country among counselor training programs, and I'm proud to be a part of it.
