Practicum & Internship

Get intensive supervision while developing your clinical skills in MFT

Putting the information you learn in courses into practice as part of the MFT internship.

  • The MFT faculty will evaluate you over the first year of study to determine your clinical readiness to begin the internship training.
  • Off‑site internships begin during the second year of training for full-time students.
  • As an intern, you are concurrently enrolled in a practicum class where you present your clinical work and receive supervision of the faculty members.
  • All students must accumulate a minimum of 500 hours of direct client contact. At least 250 of those hours must be relational (e.g., family, couple).
  • More information can be found in the MFT Internship Handbook
