Cousenling Psych PhD with Forensic Emphasis

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Planning on applying this upcoming December but I am struggling with school selections. I would really like to go to a counseling program with a forensic background but other than TTU, all I can find is clinical psychology programs with this emphasis. I really wanted to go a counseling route but it seems like I'm running out of options. Anyone know of any FUNDED counseling PhD programs that has a professor/or emphasis on forensic psych? Thanks!

Many counseling programs don't have funding, but one that does is University of Southern MS. There is at least one faculty member in the counseling program there who does forensic work.

Forensic Psychology is a pretty small subfield - why aren't you considering Clinical programs?

The majority of my list is clinical and I'm prepared to just apply to those programs, I just always wanted to go a more counseling based route. My undergrad mentor and my dream grad school mentor both obtained counseling based PhD's and they are forensic psychologists so I think that is what kind of makes me want to go this route instead.

You can look into West Virginia University. Their Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program is fully funded and have a forensic track. http://counseling.wvu.edu/counseling_psychology
