Kansas City Education Center


Friends University has served students in the Kansas City metro area since 1989. In July 2015, the Kansas City Education Center relocated to Overland Park near Metcalf Avenue and Shawnee Mission Parkway. This location is more accessible and convenient for our marriage and family therapy students who are navigating on-campus classes and off-campus internships with community organizations.

Marriage and Family Therapy Degree

Friends University is nationally recognized for its Master of Science in Family Therapy degree. The program prepares students to become practicing, licensed marriage and family therapists and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education.
