Welcome to Counseling Psychology

The Counseling Psychology Master's Program in the Department of Psychology at FIU is committed to preparing future therapists, counselors, consultants, and researchers, for the independent and licensed professional practice of counseling, psychotherapy, and psychotherapy research. Our program offers students a solid foundation in psychology and opportunities for specializing in a range of clinical problems and diverse populations, through faculty guided research and supervised clinical training.

The program is designed to provide instruction and training for advanced study in psychology and to prepare students to become Licensed Mental Health Counselors. Students are trained to utilize scientific and applied behavioral science theories, methods, techniques, and evidence based treatments, for the purpose of describing, preventing, and treating psychological problems, and enhancing mental health and human development.

The 2-year, lock-step program format allows students to complete the program requirements in a prescribed sequence within a student cohort. The hybrid schedule, provides you flexibility and convenience as you work through the courses and clinical training.
