UTSA launches doctorate in counselor education

(Sept. 9, 2004)--The UTSA College of Education and Human Development has established a doctoral program in counselor education and supervision with a unique focus on diversity and multicultural competence to better serve South Texas and the nation.

Approved this summer by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the degree program will prepare students to work as counselor educators, supervisors and advanced practitioners in academic and clinical settings.

"With the many demographic changes within our society, we have developed this doctoral program to ensure that our students have a strong academic foundation enabling them to evolve into truly culturally effective leaders within the profession," said Marcheta Evans, chair of the UTSA Department of Counseling, Educational Psychology, Adult and Higher Education.

"We envision our doctoral program developing into a role model for Texas and other states on effective service delivery to a diverse society."

Students in the 67 credit hour Ph.D. program will initiate research, contribute to existing research projects, participate in supervised clinical internships and provide counseling services to underrepresented populations.
