Masters in Psychology Programs in Florida
(found programs from 27 schools)


The State of Florida has 8043 licensed mental health counselors (LMHC) and 1564 marriage and family therapists (MFTs) according to the Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy, and Mental Health Counseling. Both licenses must be renewed every two years.

Given the high Hispanic population, counselors and therapists who are fluent in Spanish are at an advantage in securing employment. Jobs are often found in the major metropolitan areas and near large retirement communities. Places of employment include private practice clinics, gerontology centers, medical spas, and social and welfare agencies. Due to the large number of retired persons living in Florida, careers in counseling specific to the elderly are expected to increase.

Here are some of the top graduate psychology programs in Florida:

University of Florida: This public university has several campus locations and offers a Master of Science in counseling psychology or psychology. Students who wish to obtain an MFT license in Florida often select the counseling psychology track.

University of Central Florida: Located in Orlando, UCF is the second largest university in the U.S. The Daytona campus offers a Masters of Arts in clinical psychology designed to satisfy state LMHC licensing requirements. Students can choose the assessment and evaluation emphasis or intervention and psychotherapy skills for their degree.
