Hi, I live in Vancouver, Canada and want to become a licensed marriage and family therapist with AAMFT. Can I get some recommendations on which online Masters degree would be suitable for this? Do potential employers value an online Masters degree as much as a traditional one, especially in the psychology and counseling field? Thanks!

Thanks for your question!
In order to become a licensed marriage and family therapist with the AAMFT, you will need to obtain at least a regionally accredited master's from one of the AAMFT approved schools that will also accept international students (as you are located in Canada).
The total cost of Capella's program is approximately $44,804 while the approximate cost of Northcentral's program is $37,755.00 (for the minimum required amount of credits).
Also, Capella offers a master of science while Northcentral offers a master of arts. Comparing the differences between these programs will help you decide which is right for you—specifically if you prefer a more science or theoretical based approach.
Speaking with alumni from each program can also help you to decide.
As for your second question, online education has come a long way. Employers are much more comfortable with online degrees, especially if they follow three factors that increase credibility.
In case you decide to look outside of AAMFT approval check out the full list of all online mft degrees.
