The Counseling Psychology Graduate Training Program at the University of Florida is one of five training programs offered in the Department of Psychology. The Program is accredited by the American Psychological Association. A predoctoral internship of one year is required. The Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Florida adheres to a generalist, scientist-practitioner training model that emphasizes education and training in the integration of theory, scientific thinking, assessment, research, and practice. This training model conceptualizes science and practice as inseparable and thus promotes practice that is science-based and science that is informed by practice. Furthermore, this training model promotes science and practice that consider individual, developmental, multicultural, and contextual perspectives and that emphasize human strengths with attention to aspects of psychopathology. A dedication to psychological science is essential.
Undergraduate preparation should include at least one course in experimental methods and one course in statistics. Other courses in psychology should include at least three or four of the following: cognition, developmental, learning, personality, physiological, sensory, and social. Applicants should have competitive GRE scores and GPA (3.5 or higher).
