Counseling Psychology (PhD)
The PhD program is a minimum of 96 credits beyond a bachelor’s degree or 45 credits beyond the master’s degree. Students entering with a bachelor’s degree will need to complete the requirements of the Mental Health Counseling master’s degree en route to the PhD, which includes coursework, fieldwork, and the Master’s Comprehensive Exam.
Students complete a year-long research apprenticeship with a faculty sponsor and attend interdisciplinary research seminars once a semester. These research apprenticeship projects often serve as pilot projects for subsequent dissertation work.
