The Doctor of Education (EdD) in Counselor Education & Supervision (CES) program at Argosy University, Sarasota promotes students’ professional development and supports academic excellence while providing flexibility in program delivery.
For academic year 2014-2015, there were 30 graduates of Argosy University, Sarasota’s Doctor of Education in Counselor Education & Supervision program. Of the admitted students, 26% graduated from the program in the expected time period and 57.9% of those program graduates actively seeking jobs were employed within 6 months of graduating.
The program is accredited by the Counsel for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
The EdD in CES program meets students where they are and uses a developmental approach to develop students as counseling clinicians, educators, supervisors, and researchers. For example, the program includes a counseling seminar series that mentors students in professional presentations, publications, and leadership while the customized practicum internship experience develops the student as a clinician, professor, and supervisor.
Developmentally, students first take a course on teaching in higher education and then participate in three different levels of teaching with increased knowledge, skills, and responsibility at each level. A developmental process throughout the program supports continuous incremental growth that promotes student success.
Along with professional development, students will develop specialty knowledge and skills in an area of their choosing. Argosy University, Sarasota faculty have extensive experience in clinical practice and teaching with expertise in addictions, crisis and trauma, forensics, grief and loss, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) issues, multiculturalism, spirituality, and wellness. However, students are not limited to those areas, but can develop expertise in any area of their choosing.
“The educational process was tailored to my personal development and the faculty mentorship allowed for much professional growth.”
— Joanne Jodry, Argosy University, Sarasota EdD in CES Graduate (2011)

— Nicole Jackson, Argosy University, Sarasota EdD in CES Candidate
