Doctoral study in Counselor Education and Supervision at Ohio University is designed to provide advanced preparation for counselors in counseling, supervision, teaching, research and scholarship, and leadership and advocacy in order to serve as counselor education faculty in colleges and universities and counseling leaders in public and private educational, human services, and mental health settings.

Students typically already possess a Master’s degree in Counseling or a closely related field.  They wish to improve their scholarly, instructional, and clinical and research skills to acquire advanced training and professional development as counselor educators. 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.
