PhD in Counseling

Many people pursue a PhD in counseling after they have worked in their field for some time to gain some professional experience. There are different types of counselors and depending on your area of expertise and your past degrees, the requirements for attaining a PhD will be different. The Doctorate Level of academia is as high as you can go and affords the person who has attained this level some significant benefits, in addition to being able to put a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) behind your name. Part of the Bachelor or Master of Arts program is preparing for this test, although most people have attained their Master’s degree before they strike out on their own. From the time you receive a Bachelors degree to the time you get your PhD can take between 3 and 8 years.
