Through the specialization in Existential, Humanistic, and Transpersonal Psychology program, students are able to work closely with their mentors to develop a path designed to meet their particular needs, interests, and vocational aspirations. Topics include:

  • Humanistic psychology
  • Existential psychology
  • Transpersonal psychology
  • Phenomenological psychology
  • Gestalt psychology
  • Self-actualization
  • Transcendence

Although this specialization is not designed to prepare graduates for licensure, many students are already clinicians seeking to expand their clinical skills without the limitations of APA-modeled degree paths. Graduates of this program have applied their studies in a variety of contexts, including refugee and resettlement issues, alternative family systems, workplace psychology, police and crisis work, and trauma.

More program information can be found in our academic catalog.

*Our Ph.D. in Psychology programs are intended to open opportunities for graduates to pursue non-clinical careers or expand on their existing licenses and is not designed to prepare graduates to qualify for clinical licensure or certification.
