UF offers a dual specialist and master's in marriage and family counseling that trains students to assist diverse families, couples, and children. The 72-credit program prepares students to secure registered intern status and achieve Florida state licensure as marriage and family therapists or mental health counselors.
Each enrollee must also complete a practicum, along with an internship that takes place over their final summer and fall terms. Through these experiences, students learn from established professionals and observe them advising clients. Most students graduate with their degree within three years.
Eligible applicants must hold at least a bachelor's degree with a minimum 3.5 GPA in all upper-division coursework. They also must demonstrate an ability to perform well at an advanced level and undergo an interview. The program's admission requirements do not include GRE scores.
