Students may decide to pursue more than one certificate. In addition, if a certificate offered within a Specialization is completed at the master’s degree level, a Specialization designation (i.e., Consciousness, Spirituality, & Integrative Health; Creativity Studies; Existential, Humanistic, & Transpersonal Psychology; or Transformative Social Change) requires completion of an additional 3 credits of study. For doctoral students, such a Specialization designation will require the completion of an additional 6 credits of study in the doctoral program.
For most 16-credit Certificates, you must complete four 3-credit certificate courses, one 3-credit practicum course, and a 1-credit integrative paper that ties course study and research together. If allowed, Saybrook students may transfer credits earned through a Certificate towards their degree program.
