North Dakota MFT Programs

Students will have thorough education in the MFT field by pursuing a degree that is designated by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).

Nearly all states automatically recognize these programs for their rigorous academic standards in coursework and clinical practicum hours, satisfying the criteria they have set.

In the state of North Dakota, there are no graduate programs available that are accredited by the COAMFTE. If you are certain on a COAMFTE accredited program, you should consider an online MFT program.

Why Online?

Pursuing an online program provides more flexibility for students to study on their own time and complete clinical experience at a local health care facility that is approved by the university. Students should be aware that some online programs require on-campus residencies, which are mandatory visits to further learn about the program they are about to dive into. Technical requirements also need to be met in order to have a satisfactory experience when learning online, like having proper computer equipment running Windows or Mac operating systems and having access to high-speed internet.
