Online Counseling PhD Degree Programs

Go into academic research or take your skills to help clients achieve balance in their life.

To earn a PhD in counseling, you’ll need to spend time conducting original research.

Some states require practicing psychologists to have a Doctorate in counseling. After graduating from a program, you have the option of counseling clients or going into a research position.

While part-time academic work can be easy to find, it is sometimes challenging to land a tenured teaching or research position. Perhaps for this reason, many PhD graduates choose to open their own private practice as counseling psychologists or clinical psychologists.
