Master's Degree in Family Therapy

The Master’s Degree in Family Therapy (MFT) offered by Jefferson is distinct. The Program is a unique collaborative effort between two highly-respected institutions: Thomas Jefferson University and the Council for Relationships. This is a full-time, two-year, 66-credit program which is modeled on the core  curriculum developed by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).

 At the end of the first year of study, students will select one of two specialty tracks: the Sex Therapy Track or the Family Therapy Track. Both serve to develop a deep understanding of some of today’s most pressing clinical issues. The Sex Therapy Track requires two advanced courses in sex therapy, while the Family Therapy Track requires advanced coursework in medical family therapy and family violence. Each has specific practicum opportunities that bolster student learning. Admission to each track requires faculty approval.
