Counseling and Counseling Psychology

Promoting the Health of a Diverse Society

The faculty of Counseling and Counseling Psychology focuses on the education of counselors and psychologists to become culturally competent to work with a diverse clientele in a variety of mental health settings. We highlight the use of research to inform our knowledge base and our training to prevent or treat psychological problems and to promote the health of individuals, families, groups, and organizations in a multicultural and diverse society.

New students begin the program in fall semesters only. All application materials must be submitted between September 1 and December 1 (for the Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program) or the first business day after January 1 (for the Master of Counseling program) in order to ensure consideration for admission the following fall semester.
