The Marriage and Family Therapy Program is part of the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs and shares the common mission of addressing the needs of urban living. For a brief overview of the UNLV MFT program, please check out some of the fast facts about the program.

The program offers a full-time master's degree. The master's degree prepares students for a profession as a marriage and family therapist as well as a mental health counselor by integrating components of MFT theories as well as mental health diagnoses. The degree also qualifies students to apply for licensure in the state of Nevada and sit for the national MFT licensing exam.


In December of 2007, we were officially granted candidacy status by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Education. To find out more about the accreditation process, visit the COAMFTE website.
