in Counselor Education and Supervision Overview

Counseling is one of the country's fastest growing professions, creating an accompanying need for counseling educators and supervisors. This rigorous counselor education and supervision doctoral degree program includes online course work, residencies, and field experiences designed to build students' clinical, teaching, research, and supervisory skills. Capella's degree program is one of few available online, and provides opportunities for students to potentially fulfill their internship experiences working with counseling students enrolled in Capella's CACREP-accredited master's degree programs. People likely to be interested in this specialization include master's level counselors interested in pursuing supervisory, faculty, research, or advanced practitioner positions in academic and clinical settings.

As doctoral learners, students will attend 3 5-day colloquia at specific stages in their programs, in addition to their online courses. These energizing residencies provide students with insights and knowledge that will be valuable during doctoral studies and beyond.

This specialization requires course work and clinical experience, including a 100-hour practicum and a 600-hour internship.

Applicants to the PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision must be graduates of a CACREP-accredited master's program or a master's program with equivalent curriculum (subject to Capella review).

Financial Aid

Capella participates in several federal financial aid programs including the Federal Pell Grant Program and Federal Stafford Loan Program. Capella is also eligible to certify Veterans Educational Benefits and can provide information on other non-federal loan programs.

Capella-funded scholarships are also available in select disciplines, such as the Robert C. Ford Human Services Scholarship and the Helene Krivosha Scholarship for education students. There are also external scholarships offered specifically to Capella students, such as the Go the Distance Scholarship.
