(DENVER) – The Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) recently accredited the Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) program in Regis University’s College for Professional Studies (CPS). The program is now one of only two accredited programs in Marriage and Family Therapy in Colorado.
The accreditation assures that the course of study is appropriately rigorous and inclusive. A degree from an accredited program also communicates to employers the students’ preparation for the professional setting. By graduating with a degree earned through an accredited program, students are eligible to apply for Clinical Membership in the America Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
The Marriage and Family Therapy program at Regis requires 60 credit hours to complete and includes six credit hours of hands-on experience in Practicum, which takes place at the state-of-the-art Counseling Labs at the Broomfield and Colorado Springs campuses. Two semesters of clinical experience are also required through internships at local counseling agencies.
CPS offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees designed for busy adults in business, computer sciences, counseling, education, humanities and more. CPS is comprised of four schools: School of Management, School of Computer and Information Sciences, School of Humanities and Social Science, and School of Education and Counseling.
