Marriage and Family Therapy (M.A.)

Department of Marriage & Family Therapy

Offering master's (M.A) and doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in marriage and family, the Department of Marriage & Family Therapy provides students with the education and experience they need to become qualified family therapists. Graduates of our programs work in public and private mental health agencies and health maintenance organizations (HMOs), as well as in private practice.

Students benefit from training in culturally sensitive therapy and a focus on the development of the self of the therapist, components of our programs that have garnered national recognition. Students are also exposed to a broad base of family therapy theories, as well as couple therapy, child development, and cultural diversity, and may sample from multiple clinical electives.
