The CACREP accredited Clinical Mental Health Counseling track in the Counselor Education MA program prepares students for licensure in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and to practice in agencies, private practices, and other settings.

As part of the program's pragmatic approach to preparing counselors, in addition to classroom studies, all students complete clinical experiences in the UCF Community Counseling and Research Center and field-based experiences in the community. The UCF Community Counseling and Research Center serves as a hub for training and research in the program, with graduate students providing counseling services to children, adolescents, and adults through the provision of individual, couples, and family therapy. The CCRC serves more than 1400 individuals, couples, and families in the central Florida community.
