Marriage and Family Therapist Degrees in Wyoming
For residents in the state of Wyoming, there are minimal opportunities in nearby states to pursue an accredited graduate program in marriage and family therapy.
There are some opportunities in the state of Colorado, such as Colorado State University in Fort Collins. For those that cannot make the trek to one of these universities for study, there is an opportunity to pursue a program online. One example is Northcentral University, which has a campus based in California, but an online MFT program.
They offer both a Master of Arts and PhD in the MFT field, the latter being one of only two programs in the country that is accredited by the COAMFTE. Students should consider the potential for on-campus residencies that are required in the program, and that they have the technical requirements needed in order to access the school's learning management system.
