Doctoral study in Counselor Education & Supervision at Ohio University is designed to provide advanced level preparation for counselors in various public and private human services and mental health settings as well as prepare individuals to be counselor education professionals in colleges and universities. Preparing counselors to work in these positions is our highest priority. The program admits 6-8 students yearly for study toward the Ph.D. degree.
Students typically already possess a Master’s degree in Counseling or a closely related degree. They wish to improve their scholarly, instructional, clinical and research skills and to acquire advanced training and professional development. The doctoral program is based on the philosophy that each student enters with unique strengths and abilities and individual professional career goals; therefore, beyond the required courses, each student is expected to build a program based upon prior academic preparation, previous work experience, and future career expectations. The program is planned to help develop leaders in the field of counseling, and the goal is to train people who desire to have the professional identity of a counselor.
Doctoral graduates from this program become (1) college and university counselor education faculty members; (2) counselors, administrators, consultants, and trainers in mental health settings; or (3) practitioners in private practice.
The Counselor Education and Supervision doctoral program at the Ohio University is fully accredited by the Council of Accreditation for Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) through 2016. Currently, the Counselor Education and Supervision program has a total of 26 students. For the 2012-2013 academic year a total of 7 students graduated from the program. Graduates in the Counselor Education and Supervision program have a 100% job placement rate.
The program has 6 full-time tenure-track faculty, 3 part-time emeriti, and 4 part-time adjunct faculty who teach the CACREP accredited curriculum. We are seeking to hire a non-tenure track teaching faculty to replace a faculty member who left at the end of the 2010-2011 academic year.
