Couples & Family Therapy

The table below indicates earning a Master of Science in Couples & Family Therapy is deemed to meet the education requirements for licensure in that State. The Couples and Family Therapy (CFT) master’s program has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and approved by the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. The University of Oregon’s CFT program conforms to COAMFTE standards 12.0 educational requirements and meets or exceeds all educational requirements for MFT licensure in Oregon. However, although most states set their licensure educational standards according to CFT Student Handbook and COAMFTE guidelines, it is possible that moving to a state outside of Oregon may require additional coursework in order to pursue a license. Please note that this table does not include an evaluation of state specific requirements beyond that of educational and curricular requirements.
