Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision - Qualitative (Online)

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Counselor Education and Supervision program at Grand Canyon University gives learners the theoretical and practical background knowledge to teach counseling students and supervise clinical counselors. Before earning the degree, learners must conduct psychological research to develop and test new ideas and theories. This research ensures that they will be expert practitioners who are fully capable of supporting counseling students and clinical counselors.

During the course of this PhD program, learners will grow in the areas of:

  • Counseling
  • Teaching
  • Counselor supervision
  • Leadership and advocacy
  • Scholarship
  • Statistics and research

Doctoral students pursuing GCU’s qualitative PhD will focus on analyzing how and why people think, believe and behave a certain way, whereas students pursuing GCU’s quantitative PhD will focus on analyzing events by interpreting numeric data. To complete the analysis for a qualitative PhD, students will create a sampling plan, design various research tools, collect data and analyze the data using a systematic approach. Their results will then be presented in a written report.
