The Department of Humanistic and Clinical Psychology offers masters and doctoral degrees in Psychology through convenient distance learning courses along with face-to-face learning in a variety of residential formats.

Faculty mentoring is a distinguishing feature of our approach. When you begin your studies, you will be assigned a faculty mentor who assists you in the achievement of your goals, provides a connection to your chosen discipline, connects you with other faculty and students who share your interests, and works with your Academic Advisor and Academic Services Coordinator to ensure your academic needs and expectations are fulfilled.

Curriculum Learning Goals
The curriculum learning goals express the Department's mission and vision as overarching tenets that inform the learning objectives of degree programs, Specializations, and courses. They guide and support students in aligning their own aspirations and program goals and objectives with Saybrook University’s mission. Student learning outcomes for each of the degrees are based on these goals. These learning goals support students to become:

• Leaders for life-enhancing social change
• Self-reflective scholar-practitioners
• Extraordinary thinkers who move beyond traditional disciplinary and paradigmatic boundaries
• Professionals who place their work within an expanded geopolitical, temporal, and socioenvironmental context
• Persons who experience intra- and interpersonal authenticity and compassion
