Northcentral University is an accredited, nonprofit, online graduate school and an affiliate of JFK University. You can complete your degree program online by transferring to NCU. It’s a seamless way to continue your education and reach graduation day!

Accredited and convenient

NCU’s master’s and PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy are COAMFTE and IACSTE accredited.* Additionally, the master’s program also meets the requirements for the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) Licensure in California.

Please note: While the coursework component of our MFT degree programs is delivered online, students still receive face-to-face client interaction through practicums and internships in their local communities under the direction of an approved supervisor.

The states of Kansas and New Hampsire will not accept online degrees. Thus if you intend to move and/or become licensed in one of these two states in the near future we do not recommend this program.

It is the student's responsibility to verify that the state requirements are fulfilled and that state licensure if applicable is met.
