What We'll Review

  • Program overview
  • What you will learn
  • Who will teach you
  • How you will be taught
  • How much will it cost
  • What you can do with a MSMFT degree
  • How this degree and training compare to other degrees in the mental health field
  • Training in the Bette D. Harris Child & Family Clinic
  • The application process
  • The student panel
  • Q&A with prospective applicants

I knew this was the program for me after the first open house: the students showed so much pride in their education and I was hooked by their emphasis on working systemically. I have always been fascinated by relationships - the MFT program gave me the language and guidance to translate that fascination into something useful.
