Marquette's scientist/practitioner doctoral program in counseling psychology is accredited by the American Psychological Association. It focuses on building the skills necessary to become counseling psychologists in colleges and universities, community mental health clinics, hospitals, private practice and other environments; administrators; or academic psychologists. The program also engages students in research so they will be able to contribute to our understanding of therapy process, treatment effectiveness, and normal and abnormal human development, as well as many other areas.
Visit the Department Web Page for more detailed program information.
December 1st for the following fall term.
In recent years, new full-time doctoral students have been supported by part-time research assistantships through the department. Scholarships have helped some additional students, and a variety of fellowships and other options are available. For more information, see the Graduate School's financial aid page.
We will not know the number of assistantships available to next year's students until our admissions offers are sent out during the middle of the spring semester.
U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible to apply for need-based federal aid (loans) to help fund their educational expenses as well.
