MA/MS Touro University Worldwide

  1. Hello all,

    I've been looking for information on Touro University Worldwide and their program in Marriage and Family Therapy. I can't seem to find anything concrete about this program beyond the basics of Touro University being non-profit and accredited. The program seems really great - it meets all the requirements for licensing in my state - and I'm looking at applying for the next session this October.

    Here on the forums, there are mentions of other programs at Touro, but the only things I've seen about the MA in MFT is one question similar to this with no responses from about 2014 and one reference to "taking Touro off your list" with an allusion that they were only interested in money.

    Does anyone have any direct experience with this place? Please help!

    Run far away from anything that has the name Touro in it and don't look back.

    If people are telling you to run from this school, then it'd be a good idea to pay heed.

    If you're still considering Touro, though, then please make extra sure that this program meets licensure requirements for your state. A reputable program would not need to put a disclaimer such as this one on their website:

    If you cannot get licensed outright with a degree from this program in your state and need to file for equivalency, then I'd be wary of attending simply because you don't want to gamble thousands of dollars on a chance of being able to practice. Getting a state licensure board to see your degree as equivalent can be an arduous process. Don't go through that unless you absolutely must.

    Furthermore, the MFT program is not accredited by COAMFTE. At the graduate level, you are not looking for regional accreditation, even though that is the bare minimum you should expect of a school; instead, you are looking for the program to be accredited by your chosen profession's regulating body.
