What Will You Learn?

The Master of Arts in Consciousness Studies and Transpersonal Psychology is a 36-credit degree program that explores the nature, role, and development of human consciousness and transpersonal phenomena. What makes this program unique is the holistic integration of many perspectives into the coursework - psychological and spiritual, western and eastern, epistemological and clinical.


Students are first introduced to the historical origins and the theoretical and methodological foundations of Transpersonal Psychology. We learn and experience various theories of the states and stages of consciousness and the processes and practices that often lead to transpersonal experiences such as awakening, enlightenment, and unity consciousness. As a hands on exercise, students themselves will engage with meditation and somatic-awareness practices aimed at re-establishing the unity of mind-body consciousness. Through these practices students will learn to access their own intuition and embodied wisdom, as well as gaining transpersonal insights. Practices of mindfulness and presence are cornerstones of the program.

This program offers the foundation for discovery and empowerment that leads to greater fulfillment, purpose, and effectiveness in students' personal and professional lives as well as in their clients’.
