Join a nationally-ranked, CACREP-accredited program with the PhD in Counseling and Student Personnel Services at the UGA Gwinnett Campus.
Social justice and multicultural values guide our degree in counselor education and supervision. We have designed the program with a flexible schedule ideal for full-time school counselors, mental health counselors, and student affairs professionals.
Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
Most graduate students at UGA are not assigned to a faculty advisor until after admittance. A close working relationship with your advisor is paramount to progressing through your program of study.
You will proceed through the program within a cohort. These relationships offer working professionals additional support and an ongoing connection to their studies.
Students have opportunities for research, teaching, and service in counselor education and supervision.
Contribute your expertise to youth organizations such as Georgia Safe Schools Coalition and Empowered Youth Programs. Stay connected to the graduate community with our PhD newsletter.
