We are so glad you are checking out the Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy at Western Seminary, Sacramento! We find great joy in educating and training those who pursue graduate education in Marriage & Family Therapy. We hope you find materials here that will help you to decide if you would like to become part of this learning and faith community.

We highly value an environment of spiritual and personal encouragement, which is supported by small class sizes that allow students and faculty to interact on a personal level in and outside of the classroom. In Bible and Theology classes, graduate counseling students study alongside students from other degree disciplines, grappling with questions on how to apply theological truth to practical issues.

Our program is approved by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, which means graduates of our program meet the educational requirements for licensure in California as a Marriage & Family Therapist (L.M.F.T.) and with minimal independent study work, meet the requirements to become a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (L.P.C.C.). Our students value our flexible scheduling, and lower tuition rates, and our graduates are very respected and sought after in the treatment community.
