MA Marriage & Family Therapy
If you are passionate about helping others build healthy relationships and strong families, then God may be calling you to start your journey toward a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT). The MAMFT program helps students develop competent professional skills as beginning marriage and family therapists, and we are the only faith-based institution on the east coast with the specialized accreditation that we provide.
The distinctions of our program include:
- 65 credits plus 300 or 500 supervised practicum hours, depending on student’s goals
- COAMFTE accredited (See aamft.org)
- Meets the educational requirements for Pennsylvania state licensure for MFTs
- Cohort-based classes Tuesdays and Thursdays, late afternoon and evening
- Student intern placement at one of our counseling centers or collaborative sites during the first year of practicum
- Integration of biblical principles and Christian faith with marriage and family theories
The cohort model helps to foster a safe and supportive environment that enables students to develop close relationships with each other and with their professors. As you address your personal foundations from within this framework, you will grow personally, relationally, and spiritually, and find yourself transformed and equipped to serve as a professional marriage and family therapist.
