Family Therapy, MS (online)
The MS program prepares its graduates with a vision of strengthening healthy families by leading students to view families as entities within larger social systems and promote collaborative, inclusive, and integrative systems approaches. The aspirations of the family therapy program are consistent with the university and college mission and goals that reflect a commitment to serve urban communities. This urban focus provides a unique opportunity for students to understand the significance of facilitating dialogue for marginalized individuals, families, and communities.
Note: The COAMFTE does not presently accredit online family therapy programs; consequently, the online family therapy program is not accredited. The online program is designed for students who cannot readily access the Boston campus. The admissions committee will assess this criterion. Those applicants who can reach the campus are encouraged to apply to the on-campus program.
The program prepares students to meet the academic requirements for licensure in family therapy (LMFT) by the Board of Allied Mental Health and Human Services Professions in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. For licensure in other states, students are advised to check with their state’s board of licensure for academic requirements.
