Online Master of Science (MS) Degree in Human Services - Marital, Couple, and Family
Counseling/Therapy - CACREP Accredited
Our online master's degree in human services is designed to enrich
your professional knowledge and help you more effectively address social
issues and challenges in your community.
Capella University is the first and only online university to receive
accreditation for two master's degree specializations in counseling from
the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational
Programs (CACREP). The mental health counseling specialization was
accredited in 2003, and the marital, couple, and family therapy
specialization was accredited in 2005. CACREP, formed in 1981 to be the
independent accrediting arm for the American Counseling Association, has
extended accreditation to both specializations through 2011, the longest
accreditation term granted by CACREP.
The marital, couple, and family counseling and therapy master's degree
specialization will teach you to apply systems-based counseling theories
and research methods in a practice that focuses on relationship building
with families and couples.
Note: While this program may prepare you for the licensure examinations,
it does not guarantee you will receive a license.
*This accredited counseling education program requires course work,
field training, and two 10-day residencies.
