SFBC’s fully accredited counseling programs can help you develop into an ethical, well-trained pastoral or mental health counselor with the knowledge, values, and skills to help others make positive changes in their lives. You’ll get the training to further your current human services career, or enter the discipline for the first time.

With degree options at the master’s level, you’re sure to find the one that meets your professional needs. Both non-licensure degrees are available, and while the degree options are available on campus only, because they require on-campus classes, this gives you rich opportunities to network and connect with your professor and classmates on SFBC’s beautiful Deerfield Beach, Fl., campus.

And because SFBC is dedicated to Preparing Men and Women for Ministry, you’ll receive quality professional training as a mental health counselor from a faith-based perspective. Your counseling degree from SFBC will equip you to reach new professional heights and shape a better world by championing what matters to you. And that’s what matters to us.

Please note: Each individual state has its own specific requirements for licensure. Please see your state professional counselor license board for more information.
