The Marital and Family Therapy Graduate program prepares students for a Master of Arts degree in Marital and Family Therapy. In addition to State of California required curriculum in traditional marital and family therapy coursework, the program integrates the use of art therapy in the educational experience and coursework.

The program provides its graduates with comprehensive training in both verbal and nonverbal modalities. The structure of the program begins with the foundational marital and family therapy coursework, teaching sound theoretical understanding as well as a variety of clinical strategies. The program is expansive in the art therapy coursework providing graduates with training in clinical art therapy and giving them breadth and skill in the nonverbal modality.
