This program equips students to understand and integrate foundational counseling theories with their faith, while gaining practical counseling experience. In doing so, students become qualified to pursue licensure along with a career path that may involve the mental health community, private practice, the local church or international relief work.
We dedicate significant time to biblical training in order to integrate a Christian worldview with the field of counseling. As a result, students graduate with an awareness of their Christian worldview and the ability to articulate their beliefs as they interact with clients and other professionals in the field.
This program curriculum is designed by the state of California to prepare future counselors for licensure, while adding the distinctive elements of Christian worldview and theological perspective. We provide you with the necessary tools, knowledge and experience needed to grow as a therapist, counselor or mental health worker with strategic influence for the Kingdom.
Students will complete three or more semesters of practicum working as trainees before graduation. In doing so, the M.A. in Marital and Family Therapy program meets the state educational requirements for licensure by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.
