COUNSELING PSYCHOLOGY DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

College students majoring in counseling psychology are pretty unique. On average, each concentration confers roughly 6,156 four-year degrees per annum; 510 students last spring earned a four-year degree in counseling psychology, making it the United States of America's 277th most popular discipline for undergraduates. 55 of those degrees were conferred at a single college, Johnson & Wales University-Providence. 103 of those degrees were earned at institutions in Massachusetts.

Bachelor's degrees in counseling psychology are available at 36 schools countrywide; so, finding the best program could possibly be hard. Undergraduate degrees in the average subject are granted at 5.3 times more institutions than degrees in counseling psychology, making it the 315th most broadly offered focus.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 5% of last May's degrees in counseling psychology were four-year degrees; 95% were postgrad degrees. Counseling psychology is the 26th most popular grad degree in the United States, with 8,796 degrees granted. To put that in context, graduate degrees in counseling psychology are 3.2 times more popular among postgrads than the average subject.

In Total, 9,306 students received a bachelor's or higher in counseling psychology last spring.

ONLINE COUNSELING PSYCHOLOGY DEGREES

1,987 of those 9,306 students (21.4%) came through completely online programs - 54 undergrads and 1,933 master's & doctor's students. As you've presumably gathered by now, college students majoring in counseling psychology online are rather uncommon. It's the 150th most in-demand online degree, and 88.8% shy of the nation's average of 481 students per subject. For postgraduate students, it's ranked 22nd, with 3.1 times the average number of postgrads per subject (481).

Toccoa Falls College​ granted more online four-year degrees in counseling psychology than any other US school (16).

Moreover, Colleges from Georgia granted the most online undergrad degrees in counseling psychology last May (16). Georgia alone graduates 30% of the discipline's remote students.

10.6% of all bachelor's degrees in counseling psychology are completed entirely online, (22% for graduate degrees). 8.96% of Toccoa Falls College's​ last undergraduate class studied counseling psychology entirely remote, higher than any other school in the USA. 16 students in their 178 student class completed an online bachelor's degree in counseling psychology. They offer 32% of their focuses online, and had 1,008 enrolled online undergraduate students last fall. That's 55% of the student body.

9 institutions countrywide offer bachelor's degrees remote, making it the 315th most commonly available remote American degree. 25% of schools providing the degree even have an entirely remote option, and all of the institutions providing four-year degrees in counseling psychology are private. Florida has the most remote programs of any state, with 3 schools to choose from.

If you want to study counseling psychology and do not like a class room environment, you should consider Crown College, as it has the 9th best counseling psychology program in the US. It also furnishes an additional 28 degrees remotely, so their systems are presumably pretty good. Moreover, there are 601 online undergrads attending, which is 52% of their enrolled students.
