by | Jan 13, 2021 | Blog | 0 comments

Maybe you want to pursue your master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, but you’re undecided which school is the right one for you? Many universities offer advanced degrees in MFT and are quite good. The Phillips MFT program stands out from the crowd for a few “real world” reasons that help our graduates be productive quickly and create an academic family that continues to be supportive, long past graduation. 


Learn From Fully Licensed Professionals

The faculty of the Phillips MFT program is made up of licensed, practicing professionals in marriage and family therapy and related fields. It’s the difference between reading about a counseling session in a book and experiencing it live. Anyone can earn a teaching degree, but not everyone can give a first-hand account of the time spent in helping real patients. 

Students in the Master of Marriage and Family Therapy program at Phillips Graduate Institute learn from working professionals who’ve had real-life experience doing exactly what students are training to do. It’s an irreplaceable component of the curricula that helps prepare them for real-world scenarios from day one. 


Observe Actual Clinical Sessions Involving Real Clients

The program also offers a training facility that lets students observe clinical sessions from behind a two-way mirror. By watching and mirroring the actions of licensed marriage and family therapists, students gain knowledge and methods that can’t be pulled from the pages of a textbook. 

The educational experience at Phillips Graduate Institute is immersive and ever-changing, much like a career as an MFT. Early exposure to real-life situations gives students confidence in their abilities. And self-confident applicants are always in demand. 


Find Staff and Students Who Are Passionate About the Phillips MFT Program

Many students who choose the Phillips MFT program do so because of how invested they find the staff, faculty, and student body. We encourage a culture that’s passionate about helping others.

Furthermore, Phillips Graduate Institute is a proud part of Campbellsville University, a university that is dedicated to academic excellence solidly grounded in the liberal arts that fosters personal growth, integrity, and professional preparation within a caring environment.
