Licensure Options

The required coursework in Bethel Seminary's M.F.T. program meets all academic requirements for licensure as a marriage and family therapist in the state of Minnesota and most other states.  However, you’ll need additional supervised clinical practice and the passing of a licensing examination to obtain actual licensure.


You’ll take most courses on the St. Paul campus during the day, with a few courses offered as weeklong intensives, typically in June. You’ll also participate in a 300-hour, 9-month practicum to apply your new skills.
