Overview

Through the Integrated MFT program of Oklahoma Baptist University, the university provides the opportunity for students from all disciplines to begin work toward a Master of Marriage and Family Therapy degree while completing an undergraduate degree at OBU. Through the program, students from any academic discipline can pursue completion of both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree within approximately six years.

To participate in the program, the student must complete the MFT degree program admission process by submitting an application, professional recommendations, a statement of purpose and current transcript. A student will typically apply during the junior year of undergraduate course work. At least 96 hours of undergraduate course work must be completed prior to beginning master’s-level courses.

Additionally, an interview with MFT program faculty is required. The student is provisionally admitted into the MFT program until the bachelor’s degree is completed. Students who demonstrate success in the graduate courses may have the GRE requirement waived for admission into the graduate program.

Advanced Standing students may begin MFT graduate classes in August of their senior year. Undergraduates may take up to twelve hours of graduate work. The remaining MFT degree requirements may be completed following completion of the bachelor’s degree. Advanced Standing students may receive undergraduate credit of parallel content to the graduate course. The MFT Program Director will advise students on which courses they can take at the graduate level.

Students are strongly encouraged to consult with Student Financial Services to determine the best approach for maintaining undergraduate aid/scholarships while acquiring graduate credit.
