Program Details

The Master of Science in Professional Counseling with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy program is designed for students interested in becoming professional counselors. The program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify, assess, and address marriage and family-related issues, including, but not limited to, communication issues, parent-child relationship, different family dynamics, and couple's issues. The program meets the academic requirements established by the National Board for Certified Counselors. Students are provided with comprehensive training to achieve national certification and licensure in Arizona as a counselor.  Graduates of this degree program may apply for state licensure, after passing the state-mandated testing, and be prepared for careers as counselors, behavioral health counselors, or mental health counselors. This degree does not lead to marriage and family licensure. Students are encouraged to review their marriage and family board licensure to see licensure requirements.
