About

The M.S. in Family Therapy is designed to help students develop clinical excellence and prepare for careers as marriage and family therapists. Students are prepared to assume professional positions in private practice, employee assistance programs, managed care and health care organizations, child care and child development systems, family service agencies, schools, churches, hospitals.

Overview

  • The M.S. in Family Therapy is offered on-campus on NSU's Main Campus.
  • Students may enter the M.S. program in the Fall or Summer trimester. Students may enroll full or part time, taking six to twelve credit hours per trimester. Students who begin in the Summer trimester may be part time for that trimester. Classes typically meet 3-6 pm and 6- 9 pm with the exception of practicum.
  • Students who attend full-time can expect to complete the program in 2 years approximately. Part-time students will complete the program in 3 years or less depending on the pace of study. Summer attendance is required.
  • Master's students are provided NSU computer accounts including email and Canvas, but must obtain their own Internet service providers, use their own computer systems and have a usable web camera. Online students use the web to access course materials, announcements, email, distance library services, subscription library databases, and other information, and for interaction with faculty and fellow students. Online, interactive learning methods are based on the use of Canvas as a course management system. Online activities facilitate frequent student-to-faculty and student-to-student interaction. They are supported by threaded discussion boards, white boards, chat rooms, email, and multimedia presentations. In addition, Canvas enables students to submit assignments online in multimedia formats and to receive their professors' reviews of assignments online in the same formats.

Programme Structure

  • The Master of Science in Family Therapy degree program requires 60 hours of graduate coursework and clinical practical. Training is concentrated on brief, interactional models of family therapy, preparing our graduates to practice in a time-sensitive, cost-effective manner. The program fulfills the academic requirements for state licensure in Florida and for clinical membership in AAMFT; additional post-master's clinical experience is required for both credentials.
