Licensure & Certification

Students who complete Thomas Jefferson University’s Couple & Family Therapy program are eligible for licensure or certification. Because individual states establish laws regulating licensure, students must inquire directly with state licensing boards.

Our Program meets the academic requirements of Pennsylvania, all other states in the northeast region and most states nationally. In addition to the academic requirements, all states require supervised clinical experience beyond the master’s degree and the successful completion of an exam before a therapist can be licensed.
