HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Southern Miss doctoral program in counseling psychology has been ranked as the best in the country, according to Korpis, a California-based data analytics company.

The ranking criteria included a 100 percent passing rate of its students who took the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP).

The counseling psychology program was also recently re-accredited for another seven years by the Commission on Accreditation for the American Psychological Assn.

The doctoral program accepts less than 10 new students every year from about 100 applicants.
