    I'm currently working full time as a licensed therapist. I got my masters from a top tier school and would love to transition to full time academia/teaching or at least have a a couple of courses a semester.

    From my experience, while a Masters will get me in the door for some community college positions, a PhD is the way into some of the regular four year programs.

    Would a PhD in Counseling from Regent help me get into the door of a good school? How's their reputation??

    Of course, no one can answer this question absolutely but it think it’s safe to say that a PhD is not even close to a guarantee of even an adjunct position at a four year university. Those sorts of jobs are extremely competitive and the people who get them typically have some sort of ace in the hole. Maybe it’s previous teaching experience. Maybe it’s a little bunch of publications, etc.

    TEKMAN Semper Fi!

    I agree with Kizmet that a degree does not guarantee to you to land a good tenure in academia. If you are looking for Counseling Ph.D; why's not finding yourself more reputation program via distance learning. I don't know any other program out there, but Oregon State University's offer Ph.D in Counseling online might require some campus visits. At least it is a state school we decent reputation. URL:

    I'm asking less if it would guarantee me a position and more so if it's worth the investment to better my chances i.e is a PhD a a baseline necessity or can i do so with masters
