The PhD program in Counseling Psychology provides training organized around two over-arching goals:
To that end, students complete coursework in the foundations of psychology, provide supervised practice of counseling psychology services, and design and complete original research. In addition, students are actively engaged in national and regional professional organizations and activities as they develop a professional identity in counseling psychology. All of these activities are completed in the context of a programmatic emphasis on social justice and the role of psychologists as agents of social change. Program graduates are prepared to work in counseling centers, university academic departments, mental health agencies, hospitals, and a variety of other settings, as clinicians, faculty members, researchers, consultants, and supervisors.
The program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (For information regarding accreditation status, contact: American Psychological Association Committee on Accreditation, Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation, 750 First Street, N.E., Washington, DC 20002-4242; Phone: 202-336-5979).
