I was nervous about getting an MBA at Touro because it isn’t a big name program but decided to because (1) they are a non-profit, (2) they are affordable, (3) they have an established online teaching program (its still the pandemic) and (4) their program...

If you want to do your MFT coursework here, it is important that you know you will be required... Read More to record sessions (audio and video) with your clients. You'll need to get the clients permission to record. All schools are not like this, but because Touro has COAMFTE certification, it is a mandatory requirement that you do that. You'll also be required to do some mock recordings (you can use friends, and relatives for these) as part of coursework before you start practicum. Another thing you should know is that in your practicum course conferences, all levels of students are mixed together. So if you're a beginning practicum student, you could be in the course with more advanced students. You could be the only beginning practicum student mixed in with students that are close to graduating the program. This has advantages and disadvantages.
