Married couple with therapist

Message from the Chair

Our department’s Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology: Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) program is highly respected, geared toward California licensure, and is an excellent choice for students seeking solid clinical training in a distinctly personal setting.

A desire to make a difference, a passion to help, and a willingness to serve are just a few ways to describe students who graduate from our program. For more than 20 years, the MFT program’s dedicated faculty and staff have encouraged students’ growth and development, preparing them with the skills needed to help others as compassionate marriage and family therapists, while staying in the forefront of the nation’s ever-changing healthcare system. With program availability at APU’s main campus in Azusa as well as our Inland Empire, Orange County, and San Diego regional locations, students interested in pursuing the degree benefit from the opportunity to study close to home or work.

If you would like to learn more about our program and its benefits, we invite you to review more of this website, attend one of our information sessions, or email a faculty member with questions. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
