Grand Canyon University’s Doctor of Philosophy in Counselor Education and Supervision provides the opportunity for learners to demonstrate their God-given purpose in teaching counseling students and supervising clinical counselors. Learners will also engage in psychological research generating the knowledge and skills to become expert practitioners in academic or clinical environments.

This PhD program focuses on the areas of counseling, teaching, counselor supervision, leadership and advocacy, scholarship and statistics and research. The College of Doctoral Studies developed this PhD in counselor education in response to the increasing number of masters level counselors in the field and need for PhD graduates to teach at the master’s level. Doctoral students will cultivate the skills to supervise, educate and lead these mental health providers in improving their practice and health care outcomes.

This PhD in counselor education is also designed from the perspective of GCU’s Christian worldview and encourages learners to express aspects of our Christian heritage and faith-based values that affect counselor and client relationships. To further promote positive development and personal growth in individuals, learners will examine theoretical and practical foundations of counselor ethics, values, cultural diversity, and competency.
