LaurenM22 Posted July 31, 2012 Share Posted July 31, 2012 Hi everyone, I'm new to the site, and I'm looking for some help. My ultimate goal is to earn a PhD in counseling psychology so I can teach/supervise/research/and practice. I have a pretty competitive application already (3.8 GPA, practicum, volunteer, neuropsych test administration experience/5 semesters of TA and psychology mentoring experience/ but only a year of paid research experience and honors thesis after this year). I am retaking my GRE because I wasn't happy with my score. I have realized that in addition to having a low amount of research experience, I also don't have my interests in counseling psych nailed down yet. I would like to have a better idea of my research interests before committing 5-7 years to a program. That said, I'm looking into the dual master's in counseling and social psychology at Ball State University. I think the dual major provides an interesting look at the social aspects of the counseling field (I am not looking to go into social completely). Does anyone know anything about this program? Also, does anyone know any counseling programs that specifically prepare you for a PhD (master's thesis etc.)? ANY advice you have would be appreciated!
