Couples and Family Therapy to add research option

Beginning fall 2016 term, students in couples and family therapy (CFT) will have the option to complete a research project and submit a thesis as part of their coursework in the program. This option seeks to connect students seeking meaningful research options in the field of CFT with projects and advisors that align with their future educational and career goals.

"We are excited to offer a new option for CFT students to complete a research thesis/project," said Deanna Linville–Knobelspiesse, director of the CFT program. "This research thesis/project option will provide students with more in-depth opportunities to explore the areas that are most intriguing to them and to further blend science and practice"

The master's program is a 90-credit, two-year degree that prepares students to become professional family therapists in preparation for state licensure. It has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) since 2003, and approved by the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT).
