Join the FGCU Counseling Fall 2020 Cohort!

Header FGCU

I want to invite you to learn more about our Master's degree programs in
School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Florida Gulf Coast University. 
We are now accepting applications for students who want to begin in the Fall of 2020. The deadline, February 1, 2020 will be here before you know it.

Some quick facts about the FGCU counseling graduate program and our graduates:
  • There are more school counseling and clinical mental health counseling jobs available in Southwest Florida right now than we have available professionals.
  • Most of our graduates are hired before they even graduate! All of our students seeking jobs are hired within 3 months of graduation -- most before graduation, some right afterwards.
  • The FGCU graduate program in school counseling is DOE approved and both the school counseling and clinical mental health counseling programs are CACREP accredited. This is a big deal. It means that you can get to work right away and your degree is highly portable.
  • Typically students attend their courses in the early evenings so you would not have to quit your day job. The Department offers a standard plan of study for students who are working and an accelerated plan of study for students who can take on a greater work load and finish in two years.
  • Several of our courses are "blended" or "hybrid." This means that some traditional face-to-face classes are replaced by online learning activities. This way, we can take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning.
  • The Department of Counseling also offers a certificate in Marriage, Couples, and Family counseling.
  • School Counseling: Graduates from this program work in public and private schools that serve PK-12 students and some work in postsecondary institutions including career and technical centers, special training programs for youth, colleges, and universities.
  • Clinical Mental Health Counseling: Graduates from this program work in community agencies, mental health settings, and private practices after graduation and most seek and achieve licensure.
  • The department recently received a $1 million dollar grant which we will be using to develop an on-campus counseling center as well as fund professional development opportunities for students. This center is scheduled to open this month!
