  • About NCU’s Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy

    As the first MFT degree program with distance education to receive accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE), NCU’s MAMFT provides rigorous training to help you develop into a competent, ethical, culturally sensitive and licensable marriage and family therapist who will make a difference in the communities where you live and work.

    Accreditation from the International Accreditation Commission for Systemic Therapy Education (IACSTE), ensures that this program meets the quality standards for programs that provide systemic therapy education and training.
