July 11 Information Session: Ph.D. Program in Counselor Education

Montclair State University is accepting applicants for its Ph.D. program in Counselor Education for Fall 2010.

We will be hosting an Information Session regarding this program on Saturday, July 11 from 1:15 - 3:00pm in University Hall Room 1020. Prospective students will have the opportunity to meet program faculty and potential colleagues, and learn about application and program requirements.

The only doctoral program in counselor education in the New York metropolitan area, the primary objective of this Ph.D. program is to prepare scholars and practitioners to become leaders in maximizing the mental health and quality of life for individuals, families, communities, and educational organizations.

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 to working in such agencies and in business, holders of Ph.D. degrees in counselor education also 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 Ph.D. program in counselor education combines scholarly preparation and advanced counseling and supervision practice in preparation to pursue these and other career opportunities. Applications are being accepted for Fall 2010 study. Review of completed applications, including review for doctoral assistantships, will begin on or about November 1, 2009. The final application deadline for Fall 2010 is February 1, 2010.
