Overview of CSU’s MFT Program
The Marriage and Family Therapy program at Colorado State University was initiated in 1976. Since that time, the program has offered a Master of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. Students attend the program full‐time completing it in twenty‐four months. Student training includes (a) completion of coursework on MFT theories and practice, family and developmental theories, and research methods and statistics; (b) completion of a required thesis project; and (c) applied clinical training in our on-campus Centers for Counseling, Mentoring, and Assessment (C-CAM) operated by the MFT Program. Students complete three clinical rotations on campus as part of degree completion.

On-Campus Marriage & Family Therapy Clinical Programs
An important and highly unique aspect of the HDFS department is our on-campus MFT Clinical Programs. Students acquire 300 client contact hours and over 100 supervision hours in practicum and internship in the CFCT. Additionally, students will have a clinical rotation in CTRAC and Campus Connections. All of these programs and centers serve the community in important ways while giving you the opportunity to do meaningful therapy work in a variety of settings all on campus.
