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.

Peck Hall offers the most advanced teaching technologies and learning environments available in the field, further distinguishing our program from others across the country.
