Master’s Programs

 

Two master’s programs are offered by the Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology:  The Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology prepares graduates to be eligible for a limited license as a psychologist in the state of Michigan, the Master of Arts in Counselor Education, with five program options, prepares graduates to be eligible for a license as a professional counselor.

 

Doctoral Programs

 

Two doctoral programs are offered by the Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology. The doctoral program in Counseling Psychology leads to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and holds accreditation by the American Psychological Association (APA). The doctoral program in Counselor Education leads to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and is accredited by the Council of Accreditation for Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

 

Admission Requirements

Admission to a specific doctoral program is considered by the appropriate departmental training committee. Applicants should request current admission information from the Office of Admissions and from the department.

A student admitted to a specific doctoral program is expected to follow the policies, procedures, code of ethics, and course requirements for that program. Each student, upon admission to a doctoral program, is assigned a temporary doctoral advisor. Later, as outlined in The Doctoral Handbook, a student selects and requests the appointment of a permanent Doctoral Committee.

The department recognizes the importance of increasing the educational opportunities of racial minority students, as well as the importance of ensuring an increased diversity of role models in the fields represented by its training programs. Therefore, the department strives to create an atmosphere conducive to the concerns of racial minorities and diverse populations, to integrate these concerns into programs and course offerings, and to fulfill its commitment to recruit, admit, support, and graduate a diverse population of students prepared for their chosen careers.
