Graduate Information Session - Counselor Education
Join us on Thursday, December 5th at 5:30 p.m.for a Graduate Information Session featuring the Ph.D. program in Counselor Education.
The Ph.D. program in Counselor Education 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. It is assumed that Ph.D. applicants already have a master’s degree in counseling and a minimum of two years of post-master’s counseling experience by the time of admission.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Counselor Education degree prepares scholars, academics, and advanced practitioners to be leaders in the field of counseling in schools, community agencies, and higher education institutions. The 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.
The combination of scholarly preparation and advanced counseling and supervision practice allows PhD graduates many opportunities for professional growth and employment. A state-of-the art curriculum, the thoughtful choice of a cognate in the program, and faculty mentoring provides an exciting and life-changing experience to individuals desiring to make significant contributions to schools, agencies, the counseling profession, and society.
The information session will be held in the Special Collections room in Sprague Library. Additional details including the directions and parking instructions will be emailed to those registered prior to the event.
