Celebrating Our Tradition of Excellence and its Continuance 

The Faculty are proud of our 40+ year history of excellence in Counselor Education and Supervision and look forward to continuing the rich legacy developed by all past and current faculty and students. As 3-time recipients of the ACES' Robert Frank Outstanding Counselor Education Program Award we are continually renewing our commitment to advancing the profession of counseling through the development of the next generation of Counselor Educators and Supervisors. 

We are excited to offer our CACREP Accredited doctoral program in two locations,  Pocatello in southeastern Idaho, and Meridian in the Boise area! Our Ph.D. Program in Counselor Education and Counseling is an intensive, full-time experience that commits to the completion of doctoral studies in three years. We offer a cohort model of doctoral
training with emphasis in the areas of teaching, supervision, scholarship, service, and leadership.

Our doctoral students receive extensive training in pedagogy through instructional theories coursework and a series of co-teaching experiences. Supervision is also a fundamental focus of the doctoral program with students receiving training and extensive experience as a supervisor. Our Ph.D. program prides itself on the cultivation of research directly related to counselor education and supervision. We encourage and foster a high level of professional involvement of our students at the state, regional, and national levels. Student growth and development is enhanced by the high level of mentoring provided by faculty who are both accessible and collaborative.

The Department of Counseling at Idaho State University offers a limited number of doctoral graduate teaching assistantships to students admitted to the doctoral program. Students receiving assistantships also receive a tuition and fee scholarship which carries a stipend for the academic year for services provided to the Department.

The application deadline is December 15, 2013 with course work beginning in the fall of 2014. For further information and an application packet, contact:
