Program of Study
UNC Charlotte’s Ph.D. Program in Counselor Education and Supervision has been designed to prepare dedicated, knowledgeable, skillful, socially and culturally aware, and ethically responsible professionals for the 21st century. Students working towards a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision must complete a program of study of at least 63 semester credit hours. Additional internships, practica, and coursework may be assigned as needed. Although the order of coursework remains similar for most Ph.D. students, students can also work with their Doctoral Program Committee to design a program of study that best suits their needs.
Below are the required courses for the Ph.D. Program of Study, as well as a sample Program of Study.
