Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MA-LMFT) program is designed to provide graduate coursework to those seeking to work with couples and families as a licensed marriage and family therapist. The program emphasizes the development of research-supported counseling skills while encouraging students to reflect on their personal values, and to grow in maturity. There will be classes offered online, but there are required on-campus classes due to state mandates.

The coursework provided meets the academic requirements for licensure as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Texas. Students complete a three-semester practicum, consisting of a minimum of 700 clock hours, in a University-approved counseling setting under the supervision of a licensed marriage and family therapist supervisor (LMFT-S), as part of the degree plan. Before becoming an LMFT, the graduate must pass the MFT Jurisprudence Exam and complete a minimum of two years of supervised work experience (3,000 hours) in marriage and family therapy services.
