Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling/Therapy
The Graduate programs in Counseling at UNC have a long history of accreditation. The Counseling programs in the Department of Applied Psychology and Counselor Education (APCE) were accredited with CACREP beginning September 1st, 1980 until the accreditation lapsed on December 13th, 2019 while the program was in the re-application process during the typical re-accreditation cycle. All UNC Graduate Counseling Programs housed in the Department of APCE are currently in the re-application process with CACREP to restore accreditation. We are in regular communication with CACREP officials about scheduling a site visit as soon as possible.
The requirements for the Marriage, Couples, and Family Counseling/Therapy program are directed toward the development of competent professionals in the practice of marital and family counseling. The degree area specializes in relationships, interpersonal interaction, and systems theory.
