Research While Learning

Our program is primarily designed to prepare students for careers as practicing marriage and family therapists. In addition to the required courses and clinical training that are completed by all students, you may decide to apply for additional research experiences to support your educational needs and plans. These additional experiences are provided for students who want to attend a doctoral program after completing the MSMFT program as well as students with a particular interest in research as a part of their future career. These experiences include a bi-quarterly seminar on research, individualized mentoring to prepare for doctoral programs, participation in an empirical research lab as opportunities are available, and completion of a research thesis project.
