In addition to the University's requirements for admission, applicants to the Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy Program must participate in an interview with program faculty. Once your application to the university is complete it will be reviewed by the program faculty, at which point you may receive an invitation to the next scheduled prospective student interview.
Note: No person will be admitted to the program if they have been a client of the Center for Family Therapy within the previous two years of application. After the two-year time span has concluded a prospective student can apply for admission.
Students are admitted on a rolling basis and can begin the Marriage and Family Therapy Program in the fall, spring or summer semesters. Students may elect to complete the program on a full-time basis (6 - 7 semesters) or on a part-time basis, which will take longer depending on the number of courses taken each semester.
The Marriage and Family Therapy Program uses a recommended deadline for applicants of March 15 for fall admission and December 1 for spring admission.
Rolling admission will remain the program's policy with the clarification that we will accept a certain number of students each year. Once we meet our goal we will suspend new admissions until the next admission cycle.
