Marriage and Family Sciences Programs

Online Marriage and Family Sciences Programs

Degrees within the Department of Marriage and Family Sciences prepare graduates to work as helping professionals. Our graduates work with children, adults, families, individuals, couples, groups and organizations to assist them in overcoming obstacles, getting needed resources and resolving mental, emotional or relational challenges. They are designed to support students in the pursuit of licensure or certification in Social Work and Marriage and Family Therapy.

Social Work

For those interested in working to enhance the well-being of individuals, families, groups and communities, the Master of Social Work (MSW) degree can assist you in accomplishing that goal. The MSW program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Students can use this degree to pursue licensure within their respective states where applicable. Through course work and experiential field placements, our MSW students learn to see systems through both micro and macro lenses, preparing them with knowledge and skills for the rewarding work of making a difference in the lives of a broad range of people and organizations.

Marriage and Family Therapy

Becoming a marriage and family therapist is more than just a job - it’s about helping individuals, couples and families navigate the natural stressors and unexpected challenges of life and come out better and stronger than before. NCU offers Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) graduate degree and certificate programs for students who are interested in joining this rewarding mental health field. Our Master’s and PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy programs were the first distance-based programs to receive COAMFTE accreditation. These programs can provide you with a quality education and training experience that will challenge you to develop your critical thinking and research skills, while applying what you learn to professional practice in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy. Learn more about the field of Marriage and Family Therapy in our Guide to Marriage and Family Therapy.
