Program Details

NCU’s MFT master’s degree program will help you develop the skills and facilitate personal and professional growth that is needed for effective practice in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy. Coursework and training is designed to follow the guidelines of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), which are the same guidelines used by most states to establish required courses to satisfy licensure requirements.

Families today experience many emotional challenges throughout their lifecycles, and it can take a broad understanding from a caring counselor to help them overcome. The General Family Therapy specialization allows you to select courses from a wide range of electives to fit your state’s requirements, as well as to suit your personal and professional ambitions. In this specialization, you will be required to complete your content courses, including the research projects and clinical experience in areas related to marriage and family therapy.
