If you sense a call to both ministry and delivery of professional mental health counseling services, consider the dual-degree programs in Seattle Pacific University’s Marriage and Family Therapy program and in the Seattle Pacific Seminary

By pursuing a dual degree, you will bring together skills and knowledge in both disciplines, enriching your graduate education and your career opportunities. You also will earn two advanced degrees in less time than it would take you to earn the same two degrees separately. 

Three years of full-time study allows you to complete the MDiv (Theological Integration) and the Marriage and Family Therapy degree. If you wish to complete the education often required for church ordination, as well as clinical licensure, the Master of Divinity degree can be completed alongside the MS in Marriage and Family Therapy in a four-year sequence.
