The Department of Counseling at Marymount University is excited to accept applications for the 2014 Ed.D. cohort in Counselor Education and Supervision. 

The mission of the doctoral program is to prepare the next generation of leaders in the field of counseling and we are proud to offer a program focused on intensive clinical, supervisory, teaching, counseling leadership, and scholarly experiences. Forty-eight credits of a counseling MA/MS program may be transferred into the doctoral program, leaving 60-credits of doctoral course-work and dissertation. By following the full-time, 2 day-cohort structure of classes, students can complete the doctoral-core in two years followed by their dissertation. Cognate areas are available in pastoral counseling and forensics. Students can enroll in unique 3-credit, study abroad classes. On alternating years, the department offers a 10-day course in Germany to visit military installations and learn of mental health issues encountered by deployed military while also presenting at the EB-ACA Conference.  A new 10-day study abroad experience to Italy is being planned for 2014 with a focus on spiritual and religious integration into counseling and excursion to Vatican City, Rome. Students will also attend and present at the EB-ACA Conference in Milan, Italy.Marymount University is located in the Virginia, Maryland, and DC-metro with many clinical opportunities, including various hospitals and military installations who have partnered with the Department of Counseling. Pastoral and Forensic cognate areas are available to students.

We are happy to be able to offer numerous part-time graduate assistantships and numerous unique adjunct teaching opportunities in undergraduate programs to assist with tuition reduction.  Selected doctoral students will be offered these positions after admission in the doctoral program. Other job opportunities are available in various departments and offices around the campus of Marymount University.

The Ed.D. program joins four masters programs currently offered by the Department of Counseling: Clinical Mental Health Counseling (formerly Community Counseling), Pastoral Counseling, Pastoral and Spiritual Care (non-licensure track), and School Counseling. The 60-credit  programs in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Pastoral Counseling are accredited by CACREP as Community Counseling until 2017. The 60-credit School Counseling program is also accredited by CACREP until 2017 and by NCATE until re-accreditation in 2014.
