Learners enrolled in the Doctor of Philosophy in Counselor Education and Supervision degree program complete professional practice courses as a requirement of their program. The practicum and internship experiences consist of the following online courses and supervised laboratory practice/client interactions:
The practicum (CES8780) is an online course that requires a 100-hour clinical experience. Learners apply the skills developed throughout the course of the program in a counselor education and supervision setting where the practicum is completed.
The internships (CES8784 and CES8785) are two online courses that require 600 total hours of hands-on site-based learning experience in teaching, research, supervision, and leadership and advocacy. The internships represent a significant time of learning and applying clinical supervisory/teaching proficiencies that are critical to the provision of counselor education, supervision, and advanced clinical practice.
Learners should consult the Counselor Education and Supervision PhD Learner Handbook for details about the practicum/internship experience.
Each unit consists of readings, discussions, and other activities you will be expected to complete throughout the week. Assignments are due on Sundays, though not every course requires an assignment each week.
In each course, you will receive a detailed scoring guide that describes expectations for every graded assignment.
Grades are based on your participation in weekly reading discussions and completion of assignments. You will also be assessed on your ability to demonstrate an understanding of expected outcomes for your program or specialization. These outcomes are based on the needs and performance standards of your field or discipline.

Whether you're completing additional credits for your own education, want to see if online learning is right for you, or are simply interested in a specific topic, you can enroll in many of Capella's online courses without committing to a degree program. We recommend speaking with an enrollment counselor to discuss your goals and ensure that the credits you earn now may be applicable to a Capella degree program.
