Systemic Administration and Entrepreneurship, DMFT

Systemic Administration and Entrepreneurship Specialization

The Doctorate of Marriage and Family Therapy (DMFT) program is designed to help you develop your critical thinking and research skills while providing you with the knowledge, practical application, and values that will shape you into a competent, ethical, and culturally sensitive marriage and family therapist. The Systemic Administration and Entrepreneurship specialization is designed to prepare students to use their relational and systemic skills in a variety of contexts, such as private practice, mental health agencies and organizations, business, or schools. Students in this clinical specialization are required to focus their course projects, internship work, and doctoral projects on issues broadly related to administration or entrepreneurship. One unique aspect of this specialization is that students may select up to two of their four specialization courses from the School of Business or the Department of Psychology.
