Program Overview

The Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology Program accepted its inaugural class in 2009. Our scientist-practitioner model program is designed to prepare masters level students for counseling psychology practice and research in a variety of settings with children, adolescents, families, and adults across diverse backgrounds. The program meets the curricular and pre-doctoral clinical requirements for psychologist licensure in Massachusetts and our program has National Register designation. 

We enjoy a 100% APPIC- internship match rate among the five students who have applied for internships during spring 2013 and spring 2014. Four out of five of these internship sites are APA-accredited and one is APPIC-accredited.

Our Ph.D. program is awaiting official and written notification from APA, however, we have been informed that our program is APA accredited for 7 years, until 2021. Congratulations students, staff, and faculty.

The program emphasizes:

  • Multicultural competence
  • Problem prevention and health promoting practices
  • An ecological and community-oriented approach
  • Expertise in outcome and counseling research

Our training goals are to produce graduates who demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of the basic areas of psychology
  • Competence in counseling practice
  • Competence in research and scholarly activities
  • A commitment to the profession of psychology

This program subscribes to a scientist-practitioner training model, emphasizing excellent practice, informed by research, and the generation and dissemination of scholarship. The course work, supervised fieldwork, and research are integrated throughout the program.
