Marriage and Family Therapy programs at Syracuse
According to U.S. News & World Report, marriage and family therapy is one of the fastest-growing occupations today. Syracuse University’s Falk College has been preparing marriage and family therapy professionals for nearly five decades. So we know what communities need—and how to get students job-ready to meet those needs.
As a graduate student in marriage and family therapy, you’ll take classes at Peck Hall, a 30,000- square foot facility in the Syracuse community with three smart classrooms, a 24-station computer lab and an on-site Center for Couple and Family Therapy. Peck Hall offers the most advanced teaching technologies and learning environments available in the field, further distinguishing our program from others across the country.
‘First’ and ‘only’ are words that describe many of Falk’s Marriage and Family Therapy programs, including…
- The first accredited MFT master’s degree in the country

- The first and only 60-credit MFT master’s degree in the State of New York

Falk College’s Department of Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) is hosting a makeup drive to benefit the Syracuse-area transgender community March 2, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Schine Student Center.
The drive was organized by Meghan Harris and Nikki Binnie, MFT graduate students on the Trans Team at the Syracuse University Couple and Family Therapy Center, part of the MFT program. Students on the Trans Team receive specialized training to provide gender-affirmative therapy for transgender people and their families and assist in the readiness process for medical gender transition. “As students on the Trans Team, we recognized that there was a need in our community that was not being met,” says Harris. “For many transwomen it is difficult to navigate the complicated world of makeup and many face discrimination and judgment if they seek out information on their own. However, makeup is a necessity for many women that helps build confidence and is an outlet to express themselves.”
The students from the Trans Team will not only collect these resources, but will also host a workshop in the future to offer a safe environment in which to teach women how to use makeup. “We want to build connections and an extending network of support within the transgender community but we cannot do that without the help of Allies in the greater Syracuse University community,” Harris adds.
Acceptable items include mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow, foundation, blush, lip gloss, lipstick and other makeup products. For hygienic reasons, products must be new and unopened. For more information, contact Harris email@example.com or Binnie firstname.lastname@example.org.
