What kind of therapist do you want to be?
Saybrook’s MA in Psychology with a Specialization in Marriage & Family Therapy/Professional Clinical Counseling lets you make that choice.
The program trains you for multiple licensures at once, while offering you the freedom to specialize in the kinds of therapy and populations you’re passionate about. It’s a career-focused degree that gives you the practical, hands-on skills you need to become the therapist you want to be – and it comes from one of the world’s leading centers for scholarship in humanistic psychology.
Take control of your career:
By the time you graduate with a MA Psychology MFT/PCC, you’ll be prepared for multiple kinds of licensure in multiple states, including:
- Licensure as an MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist)
- Licensure as an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor)
- Licensure as an LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor)
- Licensure as an LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor)
Since the requirements for each licensure vary from state to state (as do the advantages of each license), our faculty and staff will work with you from the very beginning to ensure you have the qualifications you need to practice the way you want, where you want.
A diverse field of career opportunities exist for those with these counseling degrees. In addition to private practice, our students work in substance abuse centers, GLBT services, crisis hotlines, the military, hospitals, schools — anywhere and everywhere that helps them reach the population they’re passionate about supporting.
Become a specialist:
By choosing your own electives, designing your own capstone project or thesis, and working with faculty to find the right practicum placement, you’ll be able to focus on the kinds of treatment you'd like to offer.
Study anywhere – while you work:
The MA/MFT-PCC degree works with Saybrook’s low-residency model of distance learning, combining face-to-face learning with online courses. You'll study with fellow students from around the country (even the world) online and meet twice a year for intensive personal training. You can complete your degree without relocating, and without leaving your current career.
