Program Overview The PhD in Mental Health Counseling program provides you with the foundation and sophistication for research in areas such as evidence- based treatment, investigation of new treatment modalities, program evaluation, counselor training and professional identity, and related topics in counseling preparation. As a doctoral student, you will help to advance the field of mental health counseling by building research- based knowledge. The program builds on our strong, widely-respected master's-level program to prepare students to become high-caliber researchers and professionals. With the assistance of faculty mentors, graduates of the program will develop specialization in an area of mutual interest, including: n Evidence-based grief counseling n Substance-abuse counseling n Positive psychotherapy n Multicultural counseling The program is small and selective—accepting approximately 10 students per academic year. Small class settings enable meaningful interaction with faculty and fellow students. This doctoral program is open only to applicants with master's degrees in mental health counseling or a closely-related field. Data from the Department of Labor shows that job growth in the mental health counseling sector is expected to grow significantly— by 37 percent—from 2010 to 2020 as health insurance companies increasingly cover counseling services and as the population grows overall.
