Adler University’s Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Counselor Education and Supervision program prepares students to become expert clinicians, academics, or professional consultants in a unique program guided by themes of freedom and liberation. Our program develops empathetic, compassionate, and socially responsible leaders to promote humanistic scholarship and practice.
Our innovative program is also accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP).
Students are prepared to publish in peer-reviewed journals, and encouraged to examine and engage research interests that will drive their doctoral dissertation. Upon graduation, many work as professional consultants, advanced clinicians, and in academia.
Through strong faculty support and professional networks, along with the University’s partnerships with hundreds of community agencies, our doctoral students gain valuable experience in scholarship, clinical counseling and therapy, clinical supervision, leadership, advocacy, teaching, and consulting.
This program also allows students to add on a Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling for an additional 12 credits of coursework.
