We welcome your interest in the doctoral program in Counselor Education and Supervision at UNC. Our dynamic program is designed to meet the changing needs of a global society, CACREP accreditation standards, licensing requirements in the field of counselor education and the professional and academic needs of the students and faculty. The current program is comprised of a four core areas: counseling, supervision, theory and instruction and research. Also students will select an emphasis area in which they choose to specialize and focus their training. The emphasis areas are: child and adolescent, couples and family, school and gerontological counseling. Students may also consider a doctoral minor in Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership as a substitute for the emphasis area requirement. Many of our students also opt into the Doctoral Minor in Applied Statistics and Research Methods which is available to students in any UNC doctoral program with the approval of their doctoral program advisor. Graduates of the doctoral program pursue careers in a variety of settings as faculty members, advanced clinicians, couples and family counselors, school counselors, directors of school guidance, or directors of counseling agencies. Applications are due by December 1st each year.
