Counseling Psychology

Doctoral Program

Department of Educational Psychology

The Counseling Psychology doctoral program is one of the longest continuously APA accredited Counseling Psychology programs in the country. Our scientist-practitioner-based program prepares Ph.D. psychologists to work with both specific and general problems of human behavior in the context of a range of social processes and systems.

Our faculty are committed to honoring cultural identities and promoting a culture of belonging. We respect and value all aspects of human experiences and backgrounds and other dimensions and intersections of individual and group identity and culture. Our intentional commitments to these values inform research and practice among faculty and students and facilitate our work to train effective practitioners and influential scholars for the future of our profession and society.
