Graduate Program Handbook

Program Description

The Master of Education in Counselor Education program prepares students to work as professional counselors in pre-K through postsecondary school settings.

The Counselor Education Master of Education (MEd) program was created for students who have a bachelor’s degree in education and have completed course work for teaching certification and plan to seek certification in school counseling.

As part of the program’s real-world approach to counselor education (in addition to classroom studies) all students complete clinical experiences in the UCF Community Counseling and Research Center and on-site in local schools.
