Success Stories

"Attending USD for my Marital and Family Therapy degree has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. In this program, not only have I acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to become a good and competent therapist, I have also been reminded of the importance of living a life of integrity and love, as has been displayed to me by all of the faculty and staff in this program. They have taught me that I never know who I am going to meet, and whether it be a new friend, colleague, or client, I want them to leave their time with me feeling that they have been truly heard, and completely loved--the same way I feel completing my time here at USD. I have received more than an education here, but a new way of thinking about, and caring about the world around me." - Erica Johnson, Class of 2012
