Our Master of Marriage and Family Therapy is a 60-hour graduate program that will prepare you for Christian service and leadership in a variety of secular and faith-based clinical, medical or counseling settings. This degree prepares you to sit for the Marriage and Family Therapy National exam administered by the Association of Marital & Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB).
