Texas Tech University


Thanks for your interest in our APA-accredited Ph.D. program in Counseling Psychology in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Texas Tech University. We ascribe to a scientist-practitioner training model that emphasizes training in both research and clinical skills, with a commitment to fostering an appreciation of multicultural diversity. Our program uses a mentoring model in which we try to match incoming students with a particular faculty member with whom they will work closely during their time here. Therefore, the match between students and faculty is very important in our admissions decisions. After you browse some of the information about our department, we encourage you to get in touch directly with individual faculty members to ask specific questions about their current research and to share your own interests. 

The GRE is optional for admission.

The Counseling Psychology Program has made the necessary changes to be in compliance with Texas Senate Bill 17 regarding diversity, equity and inclusion. More information can be found here.
