Affiliated with Canadian University College and operating on the same campus, is Loma Linda University's Marital and Family Therapy Master's Degree program. Loma Linda is closing its program in Alberta and is no longer admitting students.
According to a New York Times blog, "Loma Linda University has the highest median starting salary (defined as salaries within five years of graduation), a function of their strong programs in nursing, dental and allied health." This position does drop off by mid-career.
