Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy
Why chose our program?
If you are passionate about helping others build healthy relationships and strong families, then God may be calling you to start your journey toward a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT). Evangelical Seminary is one of the only institutions in the region to offer this degree opportunity. Our program is unique in that it uses the cohort model, while integrating biblical principles and Christian faith with marriage and family theories.
Through the cohort model, students draw closer to each other and their professors as they address personal matters throughout their studies. As they deepen their self awareness and understanding, they grow personally, relationally and spiritually. As a result, most students leave Evangelical Seminary significantly transformed.
The MAMFT program helps students develop competent professional skills as beginning marriage and family therapists. Our degree meets the academic requirements for licensure in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for marriage and family therapists. Through clinical training context and academic work, students engage with culture and the world.
This increasingly popular program, which accommodates both part-time and full-time students, requires 65 credits and 300 hours of supervised practicum. Most interns serve at one of our therapy centers, where they gain experience by providing services for a variety of individual, marital, family and mental health issues. The program has received high praise from professionals throughout the region. Most of our graduates go on to serve in many compelling ways, including offering therapy in churches, in private practice, in agencies and in schools. Wherever you desire to serve, Evangelical Seminary will guide you every step of the way.
Your journey at Evangelical will lead you to personal transformation that you may have never expected!
God has life-changing plans for you!
