Touro University Worldwide
Touro University Worldwide offers the Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy, a program that prepares graduates to function in this critical discipline to foster the well-being of couples and families. The program offers multiple tracks, so you can choose the option that best fits your chosen career path. As the state of the family changes, marriage and family therapists are driven to understand the unique relationship dynamics existing between families and society to form holistic patient treatment plans that pay close attention to the dynamics of the family system.
Marriage and family therapy differs from other mental health professions because of its focus on the following:
- Treating couples and families and the family as a system.
- Present day problems instead of historical or intra-psychic conflicts.
- Understanding interpersonal relationships as a way of identifying and treating mental health problems.

Touro University Worldwide’s story starts with the founding of Touro University International (TUI). Dr. Yoram Neumann and Dr. Edith Neumann established TUI in 1998; it was the first university in the world to offer a regionally accredited doctorate program online with no residency requirements. In 2007, TUI was sold to a private equity group. In 2008, Dr. Bernard Luskin founded Touro University Worldwide to replace the educational void that the sale of TUI left. In keeping with its founding mission and principles, Touro University Worldwide prides itself on its Judaic foundation and the values that this represents. Those values involve a commitment to social justice, intellectual pursuit and service to society and the underserved.
