Ph.D. Program in Counseling Psychology at Purdue University

Our PhD program in counseling psychology is rooted in the scientist-practitioner model of training. Students are trained to integrate theory, research, and practice by developing the professional skills needed to critically evaluate evidence and deliver psychological services in a way that acknowledges the importance of sociocultural and systemic factors.

We strive for a collaborative, energetic, and collegial training environment in which students consider the importance of psychological strengths, developmental perspectives, person-environment interactions, and cultural diversity in the dissemination of scientific knowledge and delivery of psychological services.

Program Goals

The PhD program aims to:

- Train scientist-practitioners in inquiry skills for use in advancing knowledge of psychology.

- Train scientist-practitioners in inquiry skills for use in psychological conceptualization, diagnosis, intervention, and other counseling professional services-to clients and consumers resulting from a sound theoretical and research knowledge base.

- Develop scientist-practitioners who demonstrate ethical and professional behavior consistent with the standards of counseling psychology.

- Prepare scientist-practitioners who can provide competent services that are responsive to individual and cultural differences in a multicultural environment.

The Department of Psychology offers a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology (MAP). The program emphasizes the application of psychological principles and methodologies to real world problems. The program was designed to provide coursework aimed at three primary purposes for students:  1) career advancement, 2) training to enter a new career/profession, and/or 3) preparation for doctoral study. The coursework offers a balance of theory, application, and methodological skill sets used in the workplace. The program is delivered 100% online in an accelerated format so that it can be completed in one year (12 months) of full-time study or two years of part-time study.  In consideration of students’ busy and varying schedules, we have rolling admissions so you can begin and complete the program in any term. A total of 10 courses (30 credits) of graduate work is required for the MAP degree.
