Accredited by the American Psychological Association, the counseling psychology doctoral program at Ball State trains psychologists capable of working in a variety of settings. The program prepares scientist-professionals who demonstrate a strong integration of theory, research, and intervention strategies. This emphasis is reflected in our faculty's expertise in behavioral medicine, family psychology, gifted and talented populations, and multicultural counseling among other areas.
The doctoral program has a selective admission policy and accepts 10 students per year into the program. In addition to students who have completed master's degrees, students with bachelor's degrees who meet certain requirements are now eligible to apply for admission to the doctoral program. We are proud to support a diverse student population, including international students.
Additionally, doctoral students receive substantial financial support from Ball State to carry out research and present papers at professional conferences.
Three of our students were honored with the prestigious Ball State University Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation of the Year Award and one student received an APA Minority Fellowship.
