PhD Program in Counselor Education

Montclair State University is accepting applicants for its PhD program in Counselor Education for Fall 2014.

Located just outside of New York City, our program prepares culturally responsive, social justice advocates to teach and supervise future generations of counselors, provide post-academic supervision to practicing counselors, conduct rigorous research and program evaluations, and perform administrative and supervisory duties with a variety of organizations. Our program graduates have obtained positions as faculty members in Counseling programs, directors in human services settings, and advanced clinical supervisors.

Individuals with counselor education doctoral degrees work as academic faculty in higher education and in administrative and managerial roles in health care agencies, nonprofit organizations, community agencies, and student affairs/academic affairs units in colleges and universities as well as in businesses. In addition they serve as consultants for agencies on specific projects-for example, consultants to state departments of education concerning guidance outreach to underserved populations.

The Montclair State University PhD program in Counselor Education combines scholarly preparation and advanced counseling and supervision practice in preparation to pursue these and other career opportunities. As well as encouraging students to collaborate on research being conducted by faculty members, the faculty members are committed to mentoring doctoral students in developing their own areas of research and leadership.

We accept students on a part-time and full-time basis each fall. Applications are being accepted for Fall 2014 study. Review of completed applications, including review for doctoral assistantships, will begin on or about November 1, 2013. The final application deadline for Fall 2014 is March 1, 2014 (all required materials must be submitted). Please contact Harriet Glosoff, with any questions you may have.
