Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology

You’ll get real-world experience as both a counselor and a counselor supervisor. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared for a career as a psychologist, administrator, or faculty member in mental health centers, college counseling centers, private practice, higher education, or other settings where counseling psychology skills are needed.

The strengths of our program include:

  • a strong emphasis on multicultural research (most of our tenure-track faculty members conduct research on multicultural issues),
  • a diverse student body: more than half of our counseling psychology doctoral students are student of color), and
  • opportunities for specialized training in interventions developed by our faculty, e.g., career interventions for diverse women, a family-based alcohol and sexual assault preventive intervention, sports psychology interventions, and a group program to cultivate gratitude.

Admission to the program is made using a faculty mentoring approach. Students are selected, in part, based on their fit with the research interests of specific professors. If accepted, you will join the program as advisees of these professors.

When applying, please indicate in your personal statement which of these professors you are interested in working with and why.
