Counseling Psychology PhD
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.
