PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision

Program faculty developed an innovative and unique apprentice model to train doctoral students as future CES faculty members and leaders in the field. Currently, the Department accepts 1-2 student every fall. PhD students meet individually with a faculty member to discuss theoretically-based readings and assignments and co-teach 2-5 times in the Masters level course. This apprentice model allows for intensive mentoring and provides students with multiple opportunities to work with faculty in the areas of teaching, supervision, research, and service.

In addition, doctoral students complete practicum (100 clock-hours) and internship (600 clock-hours) where they deepen their clinical skills, and have an opportunity to teach masters level counseling courses, provide supervision, and conduct research in collaboration with program faculty. The program includes a dissertation in which the student conducts a guided investigation of a significant CES issue. Typically, students complete a manuscript-based dissertation resulting in the submission of 2-3 manuscripts for publications. The manuscript-based dissertation allows students an opportunity to deepen their scholarly skills and to develop a research agenda.
