Counseling psychology is the 277th most popular degree in America, with 510 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It narrowly lost to #276 Horticultural Science.

The degree is offered at a total of 36 colleges across the nation, and is the 315th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 2% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that faintly above 3/10 of colleges offering counseling psychology are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The new england produces the most counseling psychology graduates, largely led by Boston University, while it’s the Great Northeast Athletic Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Massachusetts ranks highest, with particular help from Boston University and Lesley University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more counseling psychology graduates than Alabama A & M University, which graduated 55 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study counseling psychology). More students studied counseling psychology as a percentage of total students at South Florida Bible College and Theological Seminary than any other college.
