Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Marriage and Family Therapy

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The specialization stresses a three-pronged approach to marriage and family therapy training that highlights theory, research, and practice. Because of the need to provide this well-balanced perspective, and to comply with COAMFTE requirements, students must accrue at least sixty-one credit hours to graduate. In most cases, this will require full-time students to take between two and three years to complete their Master’s degree.

Financial Aid Offered: we offer graduate assistantships for students, which covers their tuition and provides a stipend for fall and spring semesters.


The specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy at Purdue University Calumet is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). This will allow students to apply to accredited COAMFTE doctoral programs, Clinical Membership in AAMFT, and take the MFT state licensure exam after they have completed the required number of post-graduate hours practicing family therapy.
