New Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy at Antioch University New England Will Help Fill Job Demand

Share Article

Antioch University New England is introducing a new certificate program in marriage and family therapy that is a hybrid program geared toward working professionals.

"We hope this mixed-course delivery model meets the needs of professionals with active lives.”

Demand for licensed marriage and family therapists will grow by more than 40 percent over the next 10 years, says the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. A new certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Antioch University New England (AUNE) will help fill that demand.

Professionals with a graduate degree in a counseling field who want specialized training in marriage and family therapy (MFT) can earn this certificate through a unique hybrid program designed for the working professional. The 30-credit program combines campus-based classes with online instruction, with the same courses and faculty from AUNE’s master’s and doctoral MFT programs. It can be completed in a minimum of just four semesters to a maximum of ten semesters.

“This certificate was developed for professionals who already have a graduate degree in a counseling profession and who are interested in receiving specialty training in marriage and family therapy,” said Dr. Megan Murphy, associate professor of applied psychology at AUNE and director of the Antioch University Couple & Family Therapy Institute. “In addition, depending on the state in which the counselor resides, these courses may fulfill the educational requirements to be licensed as a marriage and family therapist. Some courses are offered online, and some are offered face-to-face; we hope this mixed-course delivery model meets the needs of professionals with active lives.”

The MFT certificate program begins in spring 2013. Applicants can start the MFT certificate program in the spring, summer, or fall semesters.
