The M.A. in Marital and Family Therapy program is a 48-hour program designed to meet the academic requirements for the Licensed Marital and Family Therapist license in Oklahoma. The curriculum is divided into fourteen modules containing theoretical and applied psychotherapy courses, and 450 hours of internship. Courses are completed over four non-traditional, accelerated semesters. The courses (modules) are taken sequentially to allow focused study on one subject area at a time. Class meetings occur one night per week for a four-hour session or on intensive weekend courses that meet Friday and Saturday for eight hours each day. Extensive directed study occurs outside the classroom, in preparation for participative learning experiences during class time.
