Overview

About the program

Trevecca’s Ph.D. Clinical Counseling: Teaching and Supervision is a unique and celebrated doctoral program with a strong reputation throughout Middle Tennessee. Established in 2007, the Ph.D. program exists to equip students to become counselor educators, supervisors, researchers and leaders in the field who will use their skills in service to others. Trevecca’s Ph.D. Clinical Counseling program is a Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs accredited (CACREP) Ph.D. program that provides mental health professionals with the opportunity to develop an integrated worldview emphasizing compassionate service as a counselor, educator and supervisor.

The program’s distinguished faculty members are current leaders, researchers and practitioners in Nashville’s mental health community. Faculty members mentor and guide students through the rigors of the program while creating supportive and collaborative classroom environments that focus on a unique personal growth model. Throughout the program, faculty members promote student exploration of diverse research endeavors with an emphasis on students’ individual research pursuits.

In addition to our CACREP-accredited traditional, face-to-face option, an online option will be offered to students beginning in the fall of 2022. Trevecca is committed to taking necessary steps toward receiving accreditation for the online program once it launches. Progression toward accreditation for the online option will be provided as the process ensues. Both in-person and online students will be part of the same cohort as they journey through the program together. Additionally, both delivery modes will offer students the opportunity to interact in synchronous class options, research projects and discussions with experts inside and outside of our region. The online option will require a 2-3 day residency each semester and include both asynchronous and synchronous learning times. From the onset, students must choose either the online or traditional option as their primary delivery path for this degree (a hybrid version is not an option). 

This advanced professional degree enables students to:

  • Become influential leaders within the professional mental health community
  • Become clinical supervisors who develop and mentor future counselors
  • Be effective and engaged counselor educators who equip and train future mental health professionals
  • Conduct and publish professional research
  • Enhance their skills as a counselor

Students can expect:

  • Face-to-face or online format (online option coming in the fall of 2022)
  • Small class sizes within a cohort-based model
  • Flexible class times (either online or through two half-day weekly options )
  • Program requires 66 credit hours
  • Opportunity to finish the program in as little as 10 semesters
