School Counselor of the Year Recap

The 2017 School Counselor of the Year festivities were exciting and memorable. Over the course of three days, honorees with their families and special guests participated in a career and technical education press briefing at the National Press Club, meetings with state officials, a magical evening at the Swiss Embassy including a dinner at the home of the Swiss   Ambassador Martin Dahinden, an inspirational ceremony and reception hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama, Reach Higher and Better Make Room at the White House and a black-tie gala at the historic Union Station. The School Counselor of the Year ceremony shined a bright spotlight on the school counseling profession and helped us make a mark on a national stage. From The New York Times and NBC to Time Magazine and NPR, everyone was talking about school counselors. View and download photos from this spectacular event here.

Childcare Welfare Case Manager Position

Some quick facts about the FGCU counseling graduate program and our graduates

Some quick facts about the FGCU counseling graduate program and our graduates:

  • There are more school 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.
  • 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. Several of our courses are "blended" or "hybrid" which 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 offers a dual major track for students who aspire to become both licensed as clinical mental health counselors and certified school counselors.
  • The Department of Counseling is on track to offering a certificate in Marriage, Couples, and Family counseling, beginning in 2018. School Counseling: Graduates from this program work in public and private schools that serve PK-12 students and some work in post-secondary institutions including career and technical centers, special training programs for youth, colleges, and universities. -- The Department offers a part-time option for students who are working and need more time and a full-time track for students who can take on a greater work load. -- 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.
Deadline: Priority application review begins on February 15 of each year. Qualified applications submitted thereafter will be reviewed and may be admitted on a space available basis.
