Hi all, I'm new here so please forgive me if this question has already been answered somewhere else. I searched other threads, but didn't exactly get the answers I needed. I am currently looking into grad schools (online or hybrid if close) for a graduate degree in MFT. Only a small handful are COAMFTE accredited. I would really love to got to Pepperdine but it is not coamfte accredited, but is wasc accredited. The schools with coamfte accreditation that I have looked into are Alliant, Northcentral, and a couple of others. Here is my dilemma/confusion: How important is a coamfte school vs a regionally accredited school when looking for employment? Pepperdine sounds (and looks) a lot more prestigious than Alliant or Northcentral, but is lacking coamfte. Plus, when interviewing, if I have Pepperdine on my cv people wouldn't necessarily think online education, whereas Alliant or Northcentral practically screams it. On the other hand, Alliant or Northcentral have the better(?) accreditation that Pepperdine lacks. I know that coamfte is important for licensing if I want to work for the VA or go to another state, and while I don't necessarily plan to do that, I don't want to eliminate that option either. I think what I'm worried about boils down to how employable will I be with a degree from one school versus another? I await any and all help with bated breath from you kind folks. Thank you all in advance.
