The Certificate in Marriage and Family Enrichment (CMFE) emphasizes non-clinical training in the educational task of preventive family enrichment. The abbreviated curriculum can serve as an entry-level introduction to the field for students who are interested in couples and family ministries, but cannot study full-time or are not seeking a terminal degree. For those already involved in ministry, the certificate offers an opportunity to enhance one's knowledge and skills while obtaining an added credential.
The CMFE requires the successful completion of 24 quarter units, and a typical class constitutes 4 units. The program is designed for part-time study at the main campus in Pasadena. This program is available for U.S. citizens and permanent residents only due to the limited availability of courses for each academic year.
