About this course
The program is designed to help students acquire a broad-based knowledge of psychology in its historical and cultural contexts, both as an empirical science of human behavior and as a foundation for a professional career in human services. The Master of Arts in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy includes a substantial experimental component in which the student works under supervision in an approved counseling site.
