The intent of the Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) program is to prepare Christian counselors with the knowledge, skill and insight to practice counseling in the church or in clinical settings.  The curriculum encourages the integration of theology, theory, personal formation and professional practice.  Students are expected to engage in their own personal counseling to enhance personal growth, self-awareness and understanding of the therapeutic process in preparation for work in this field.  The program covers the content areas required for state licensure exams and student membership in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
