Program Information

Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy

According to the 2012 Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment in the Marriage and Family Therapy field is expected to grow much faster than average (41 percent). Northcentral University’s Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) Master’s program is designed to prepare graduates to meet this growing demand.  Most importantly, the NCU MFT program is structured to work with adults that may need more flexibility than is found in most on-campus programs.  Northcentral University is regionally accreditated, which should allow graduates to meet the MFT licensing requirements in most states. There is no physical residency requirement, which means students are able to complete all their course work online and to secure a clinical placement site in their local community to complete the face-to-face clinical training component of the program.  All courses are taught by faculty with a PhD who possess significant experience teaching in the field of MFT and working as MFTs.
