Ph.D. Counselor Education and Supervision
The Ph.D. Program in Counselor Education and Supervision at Duquesne University is designed for counselors who wish to enhance their professional capabilities in research and evaluation, supervision, teaching, and counseling. The program is appropriate for professional counselors who want to teach in counselor preparation programs and/or obtain supervisory positions in schools and agencies.
The Ph.D. Program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), which means that the program uses a nationally recognized and rigorous curriculum. Programs that receive CACREP accreditation have demonstrated a commitment to high admissions, academic and fieldwork standards and current best practices in counselor preparation and ongoing program improvement. Masters' and doctoral counseling programs that are accredited by CACREP must hire faculty who have earned a doctoral degree in counselor education and supervision, preferably from a CACREP-accredited program. This has increased the marketability of graduates of CACREP accredited doctoral programs. Counseling psychology or clinical psychology graduates will not be eligible to be hired to teach in CACREP accredited programs. More information about CACREP accreditation can be found here.
