M.A. in Marriage & Family Therapy

Want to prepare personally and academically to become a licensed counselor in Marriage and Family Therapy? TFC’s Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) develops clinicians with the skills necessary to provide professional therapy. Students learn the skills of ethical, competent, and compassionate therapy within a multicultural, integrated Christian framework. TFC’s MAMFT meets the requirements for licensure established by the Georgia Composite Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapists. Students, alternatively, also have the option to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with the addition of two elective courses.

The MAMFT is online, allowing anyone to graduate while still managing existing personal and professional responsibilities. Students who earn their MAMFT open the door to a wide range of career possibilities. Many graduates find work as a counselor in clinics, substance abuse treatment centers, schools and private practice.

The Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy consists of 60 credit hours. This typically takes a student about two-and-a-half years to complete.

Some course topics include Theology of Marriage, Psychopathology and Diagnosis and Treatment Planning.
