Masters in Marriage and Family Counseling

For students that want to obtain a Master's in Marriage and Family Development, their classes will focus upon marriage and family therapy theory, research, major models, professional ethics, standards of practice, statistics, linear models, and qualitative research methods. Many students that desire to get this Masters degree often want to go ahead and obtain a PhD as well. That decision influences the set of classes they take while getting their degree. Most students with this degree go to work in healthcare, government, or social service areas. They can also move into leadership jobs in all of these specialties.

Many people interested in obtaining this degree need to balance busy professional and family lives. Attending traditional classes often pushes an already busy life into the crazy down. This is a primary reason why so many people are turning to online degree programs in order to get their education. Marriage and Family Development Master's Programs that come from online degree programs offer the same professional training as those offered in classes on traditional university campus. Many online classes are less expensive and substantially more convenient to students who want to advance their education while raising a family or working a full-time job. Many traditional universities offer online degrees.

Families are the core unit of any society. As long as families exist, problems will arise that will require the help of counselors. That means that those that want to advance their education and take counseling roles will find positions to work in. This is true in largely populated urban and suburban communities. Salaries for those students directly out of college depend on geographical location and industry. In some regions of the country, the beginning salary is as low as $35,000 per year while in others it can be upwards of $40,000 per year.
