The PhD in Counselor Education program is the only doctoral program in counselor education and supervision in the greater New Jersey/New York area. It is built on the national accreditation standards for master’s-level counseling programs.
The primary objective of this program is to prepare outstanding scholars, academics, supervisors, and advanced practitioners to become leaders in maximizing the mental health and quality of life for individuals, families, communities, and educational organizations. Students are prepared to work in the field of counseling as professors, clinicians, supervisors, deans or high level student affairs professionals, directors of school counseling and agency programs, and consultants.
Our intent is to train outstanding counseling professionals who demonstrate multicultural awareness, are sensitive to life development issues, can recognize and successfully address mental health needs, are effective advocates for helping people overcome barriers to mental health and well-being, and are competent to help people of all ages gain improved self-awareness and engage in effective decision making.
In addition to coursework, doctoral students have the opportunity to obtain a variety of other professional experiences through work with faculty on research, scholarly writings, conference presentations, and participation in professional associations. 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.
