Student Composition

The student population of the MFT Program is diverse, comprising students of different ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. At present, most students are from the Northeastern US, but there are several students from abroad. With notable exceptions, students in the Program tend generally to be graduates from psychology, social science, or sociology undergraduate programs.

Religious leaders also participate in the MFT Program. Several deacons, rabbis, nuns and priests are among our graduates. Other professionals who have attended include attorneys, dentists, social workers, psychologists, mental health counselors, educators, and creative arts therapists. Additional prominent contributors to the Program are students who are re-training for new careers, possibly after extended periods spent away from the world of work.
