Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services

Department of Family, Consumer, and Human Development

The MMFT degree requires the same coursework and requirements as required for the MS degree, but does not include a thesis. 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 intern-level licensure as marriage and family therapists in the State of Utah.

Master's Course Requirements

The core substantive courses for the master’s degree are FCHD 6031 , FCHD 6050 , FCHD 6060 , and FCHD 6070 . Master’s students also complete course requirements under their chosen specialization in Marriage and Family Relationships, Marriage and Family Therapy, Consumer Sciences, Infancy and Childhood, Adolescence and Youth, or Adult Development and Aging. Elective courses and thesis topics are individualized with each student by faculty supervisory committees. For more specific information, see the department's Graduate Student Handbook online at:
