Doctoral Program in Marriage and Family Therapy at AUNE Is Accredited

The doctoral program in marriage and family therapy at Antioch University New England (AUNE) has been granted initial accreditation by the Commission on the Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE). The AUNE PhD program is one of only twenty-two doctoral programs in marriage and family therapy accredited by COAMFTE in the United States.

COAMFTE has also renewed accreditation for AUNE’s master’s program in marriage and family therapy for six years. That program has been accredited since 1993.

COAMFTE accredits master’s, doctoral, and postgraduate degree clinical training programs in marriage and family therapy in the United States and Canada. To become accredited, AUNE’s program had to be extensively assessed by COAMFTE’s external evaluators to make sure it meets the standards set by the profession.

Accreditation establishes a program’s credibility and reputation and assures students that the program includes all knowledge and skills they will need to enter their chosen field.

Having a degree from an accredited master’s program in marriage and family therapy is a requirement of many state laws on licensing therapists. At the doctoral level, many programs seek to hire faculty who have graduated from accredited PhD programs.
