Southern awards a unique Master of Family Therapy (MFT) degree. Students select between either a two or three-year track of study. In both tracks students start with dyadic coursework, progress to seeing clients in the University’s on-site Family Clinic, then move into off-site agency internship in the final year of program enrollment. Rigorous academics, comprehensive clinical training, and a unique self-of the-therapist focus are hallmarks of a program that is committed to diversity, insists on cultural competency, and values experiential learning. Due to expenses related to clinical training, the MFT program has a $150 per semester (full-time) or $15 per credit (part-time) program fee.
