University of Southern California
The MFT master's degree program in the Rossier School of Education at USC trains highly competent MFTs who are proficient in working with diverse client populations in a pluralistic society. Students serve clients in urban communities, providing individual, couples, and family therapy, for children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly population from a wide variety of backgrounds, with various therapeutic issues. The program provides personalized attention to students, including small class sizes, active advisement/mentorship, and a cohort model; immersing students in a small, tight-knit learning community. Students come from a variety of training backgrounds, not just psychology, and are graduates of nationally and internationally recognized institutions. Graduates meet eligibility requirements for licensure in California and most other states. Our students are aggressively recruited for internship/employment positions post-graduation, and often return to USC to participate in alumni and recruitment events, wanting to continue their alliance with USC and the MFT program.
