We Value Diversity
We value a diverse learning community. Together, we encounter and experience a rich variety of perspectives, ideas, belief systems and ways of thinking. In and out of class, we are enriched by each other's stories, opinions, and personalities. The learning that happens between students is equally as vibrant and powerful as the literature we read, the assignments we complete and the exams we take. The relationships we build with each other as a cohort of graduate students make us more culturally aware human beings and more effective therapists-in-training.
The Couple and Family Therapy Center
The Couple and Family Therapy Center is a training facility for our MFT students to hone their therapeutic skills with and for clients who come to us from our community. Together, clients and therapists in training work toward their common goals.
- Our new home: In Fall of 2014, the MFT Department and Couple and Family Therapy Center will move to "Garfield Station," a new development on Garfield Street.
