Community Psychology, Counseling and Family Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapy

Our graduates acquire the tools and skills to improve the well-being of individuals, families and social systems within their diverse and multicultural settings.

You’ll be able to progress toward a degree while continuing to work because we limit our cohort-based classes to two or three days a week. And, we provide strong, on-campus experiential learning opportunities as well as help you complete internship requirements.

Our alumni often return as guest lecturers or to connect with our students as advisers and mentors.

The research of our full-time, doctorate-level faculty provides additional learning opportunities for students. Among their topics: the lives of children born through reproductive technology and their families, sexual health in Somali couples and divorce in Muslim families.

*Minimum length of time (2 years) is the shortest time possible that a student could complete the program (i.e., a student doubled up on coursework one semester and was able to graduate early). Advertised length of time (2 years) is how long the program is designed to complete as written. Maximum length of time (7 years) is the maximum allowable time in which a student could finish the program (i.e., if a student needed to take time off due to illness, family responsibilities, etc.).
