Online MFT Degrees in Hawaii
Since there are no accredited programs in the state of Hawaii, the best course of action is reviewing online programs.
There are a handful of opportunities based in the continental 48 states, with institutions such as Capella University in Minnesota and Syracuse University in New York. Students should review if there are any on-campus residencies that are required.
In these instances, students must travel to campus in order to prepare for their program and meet with faculty and other peers. They must also consider technological needs, such as a modern computer that runs on a Windows or Mac operating system, has a compatible browser to run the learning management system software, and there is high-speed internet access to view video lectures and other high-end features for online students.
