La Salle University offers Master of Arts degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling.
La Salle’s COAMFTE-accredited Marriage and Family degree trains students to evaluate and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders and a wide array of relationship issues within the context of the individual and/or the family system. It prepares students for licensed employment in a variety of clinical settings including private practice.
The M.A. in Professional Clinical Counseling grounds students in counseling theory, and provides training in assessment and treatment to prepare students to become licensed professional counselors in mental health and related settings, including private practice. Education and training are oriented toward the adoption of a client-centered, rather than an illness-centered approach.
Students can attend on either a full-time or a part-time basis for the Marriage and Family Therapy Program or the Professional Clinical Counseling Program.
Acceptance into the MFT and PCC program occurs in Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
La Salle’s M.A. degrees provide an excellent background for students preparing for doctoral study.
