Family Therapy (MFT)

Department of Couple & Family Therapy

The mission of the COAMFTE-accredited MFT graduate program is to prepare systemically-trained, culturally competent, socially-just clinicians to meet the academic and clinical standards for independent practice in the field of family therapy. The Program exposes students to an array of classical, postmodern and research-informed family therapy approaches, using an integration of the Person of the Therapist model, cultural competency, and social justice frameworks for education, supervision and training. Our distinguished, internationally-recognized faculty is dedicated to training students to serve a diverse client base across myriad communities, and increasing the number of diverse clinicians in the field of couple and family therapy.
