Our program, accredited by CACREP, prepares students to engage in counseling, research, supervision, and teaching. Students complete courses in advanced counseling, teaching, and supervision. An internship incorporating programmatic and student professional goals is required.
Program requirements include a dissertation, portfolio (comprehensive exam) and oral defense of the portfolio. Applicants are required to have a master’s degree in counseling (preference CACREP accredited programs) or closely related field. Students without master’s degrees not in counseling will be required to complete remedial coursework.
