Abilene Christian University

A premier selective private master’s level institution, ranked 2nd best up-and-coming college in the West by the U.S. News and World Report, with the Master of Marriage and Family Therapy program designed to prepare graduates to serve the mental health needs of individuals, couples, and families in secular or faith-based settings.

ACU has a Master’s degree graduate program that allows adults to build off their education and experience to establish further as a specialist — through a new, transformative credential, integrated hands-on learning and enriching research guided by their faculty mentors.

The MFT degree provides a way of conceptualizing problems within their relational, historical, developmental, social and multigenerational context. Rather than focusing on the individual as a source of dsyfunction, marraige and family therapists explore how the contextual factors create difficulty for individuals, couples and families. This training makes a wonderful fit for the EFT Clinic and Education Center where we hold this same system and attachment perspective.
