The doctoral program in Counselor Education and Supervision is designed to prepare graduates to be counselor educators and supervisors and to assume positions in institutions of higher education. In accordance with CACREP standards (, our goal is graduate counselor educators and supervisors who have:

1. knowledge of pedagogy and supervision,

2. advanced knowledge of counseling theory and practice,

3. demonstrate competency in the areas of counseling, supervision, and counselor education,

4. skills necessary to conduct research relevant to the profession, and

5. commitment to evaluating their own clinical, supervisory, teaching, and programmatic interventions.

In addition, graduates will model leadership through service and advocacy in the counseling profession. We believe that counselor educators and supervisors will promote awareness, knowledge, and skills in interacting with economically, socially, and culturally diverse members of communities.
