The Couples and Family Therapy (CFT) master's is a 90-credit, two-year program that prepares students to become professional family therapists in preparation for state licensure. You can learn about the program by exploring our website, you can read about it in the Family Therapy magazine article Embracing Flux, and you can watch this video by the CFT class of 2012.

Graduates of the program are equipped to provide leadership in the field of systemic family therapy for students and mental health professionals in other disciplines. Graduates are employed in mental health centers, hospitals, health-maintenance organizations, family-services clinics, churches, and the state department for children and families. 

The CFT program 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).
