Marriage & Family Therapy MA

Program Mission

We are committed to embracing diversity, academic excellence, and to the compassionate service of children, adults, and families. The MFT program embodies this mission by:

  • Expanding traditional notions of family
  • Recognizing the diversity in relationships and identity
  • Striving to use inclusive language in our instruction
  • Creating goals to diversify our student body and teaching faculty
  • Working from a strengths-based perspective that honors community wealth
  • Adapting professional trends as needed to meet community needs

I chose to attend USF because I felt that the school mission aligned with my values and it was the best school in the Bay Area that could best prepare me to be a marriage and family therapist in my multicultural and diverse community.”
