Department of Human Development and Family Studies

Students admitted into the Marriage and Family Therapy program are trained to be marriage and family therapists. While they receive their clinical training, students have the option to complete a thesis (and receive the Master of Science with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy), or to complete a Plan C non-thesis degree called the Master of Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT). The MMFT requires the same coursework and requirements as required for the MS with MFT specialization. However, instead of a thesis, students write and present an integrative Theory of Change paper as their major project, helping them to better prepare for clinical work.

This program is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) and qualifies students for associate-level licensure as marriage and family therapists in the State of Utah. Students are encouraged to research licensure requirements for other states.

Because we are a COAMFTE-accredited program, all courses are required. See http://hdfs.usu.edu/programs/graduate/mft-hdfs for the course requirements. For more specific information, see the department’s Graduate Student Handbook at https://hdfs.usu.edu/programs/graduate/graduate-handbook.
