Counseling Psychology

Doctor of Philosophy


This APA-accredited Ph.D. program is based on a scientist-practitioner training model, with a strong emphasis on multicultural issues and social justice. You’ll learn to apply psychological principles with an understanding of and respect for differing world views. You’ll undertake original research under the guidance of a faculty advisor.

This is a research-intensive program. Our program is a good fit for you if you enjoy research. You will have many opportunities to participate in research projects, present at conferences, and publish with professors in our program. While we prefer students who have a master’s degree in counseling or an undergraduate degree in psychology, we welcome qualified applicants from many disciplines.
