Licensure and Certification

Coursework required for the Marriage and Family Therapy MA program qualifies students academically to meet Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor licensure requirements in Louisiana and many other states. Since the program is accredited by COAMFTE, students can qualify for Clinical Membership in AAMFT upon completion of the clinical practice requirement. It is advised that students seek information from the licensure and certification agencies in the states in which they are interested in working for specific requirements in addition to the coursework (i.e., client contact hour and supervision requirements post-graduation). In Louisiana, please visit www.lpcboard.org. We will be more than happy to assist you in locating contact information for licensing boards in other states. Please call the Marriage and Family Therapy Programs Office at (318) 342-1246.
