The Counseling Program at Mercer University is seeking qualified applicants for the
Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision for Fall semester 2014
The program admits 12 candidates once a year. Applications must be completed by January 31, 2014 to be considered for admission. Every student admitted receives graduate assistantships with a stipend and other teaching and supervision opportunities.
The Counseling program’s mission at Mercer University is based upon a fundamental belief in the diversity, dignity, and inherent worth of all human beings and in the central role education plays in a democratic society. The Counseling faculty actively supports the College of Continuing and
Professional Studies’ commitment to quality instruction and community service.
Doctoral training extends beyond course content hours and field experiences. Doctoral students learn to examine critically the state of the art, to generate research inquiries, and to advance the profession of counseling through oral and written contributions.
The Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision is unique as students are required to complete a counseling cognate as well as an 18 hour cognate in another discipline of interest to the student. A broad interdisciplinary base at Mercer allows for great breadth in academic pursuits for doctoral students. The doctoral level counselor represents a "scientist practitioner" model and should be both consumer and producer of research. Doctoral degree requirements in counseling are rigorous. The selection process for admission to the program considers this factor. Students admitted to the program have convinced the selection committee of potential for successful program completion.
Our 11 Full-time faculty members offer a wealth of experience in teaching, mentoring, and research, and serve as leaders in both state and national counseling organizations. The program faculty’s expertise allows students to develop in-depth knowledge of numerous counseling specialty areas.
The Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision program is offered with evening classes on the Atlanta, GA, campus of Mercer University. With over 5 million people in the metro Atlanta area and the world’s busiest airport, Atlanta is not only ‘the crossroads of the south’ but is an international city, offering our students a great diversity of personal, clinical, and professional opportunities.
