CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. - Campbellsville University's Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT) degree program has been named number one in The Best Master's In Marriage and Family Therapy report released by Intelligent.com with a score of 99.89.
"The Master of Marriage and Family Therapy program is appreciative of this recognition. We are excited about the direction of our program, and the impact that our graduates will have on the lives of others," Dr. Ken Hollis, associate professor and director of marriage and family therapy, said.
According to the initial release from Intelligent, "Relationships serve an essential role in everyone's life, yet issues related to communication, trauma or abuse can negatively affect them. A master's in marriage and family therapy will prepare you to help clients repair and strengthen their relationships."
The MMFT program at Campbellsville University falls under the School of Theology. The estimated cost per credit hour is $399 and they are accredited with the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education. The delivery method for the program is hybrid, with half being face-to-face at the Louisville Education Center and half being online.
Based on the report from Intelligent, all 50 states require a master's degree to practice, therapy jobs are forecasted to grow by 22 percent through 2029 and their annual wage is on average more than $50,000 a year.
The report looked at 184 colleges and university with 317 education programs being compared. All programs are regionally accredited and many have therapy-specific accreditation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) or the Council for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).
Each program was evaluated on the basis of flexibility, faculty, course strength, cost and reputation. Each program is given an Intelligent Score on a scale of 1 to 100. "Our top picks for the best Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy Degree program are affordable, respected and flexible," according to intelligent.com.
