Anchored by a focus on Couple and Family Therapy (CFT), the MA Psychology Program at Antioch University Seattle prepares you to work with children, adults, couples and families combining both individually and interpersonally oriented therapeutic approaches.
Our rigorous academic curriculum challenges you to consider a balance of traditional and contemporary perspectives in psychology and empowers you to think critically about your practice. A dynamic mix of comprehensive clinical training and onsite internships complements this classroom learning, helping you bridge the gap between theory and practice.
Throughout our program, we emphasize personal awareness, cultural diversity, ethical practice, and social responsibility. These qualities set us apart from other clinical training programs as does the opportunity to specialize in one of two cutting-edge fields: Art Therapy and Drama Therapy.
Our graduates meet the educational requirements for licensure as marriage and family therapists in the State of Washington. If you wish to obtain licensure from the State of Washington, or any other state, we can also help you understand and meet any additional post-graduate requirements.
If you not interested in clinical training, we also offer the opportunity to pursue individualized concentrations in psychology through our Integrative Studies Specialty. In this part of the program, you have the opportunity to develop a plan of study across a wide variety of subject areas including ecopsychology, spiritual and transpersonal psychology, evolutionary, community, and health psychology, among others.
