What Can I Do with a Specialization in Jungian Studies?

Each degree has goals and related student learning outcomes that are reflected in the program curriculum, offerings, and requirements. All degree programs include student development of competencies in the area of research and scholarship. Specific plans for meeting their individual goals are developed at the beginning of the program at the Residential Orientation and in subsequent work with faculty mentors. These are reviewed and revised periodically throughout their M.A. or Ph.D. program. By the end of their studies, students should be able to:

• Work to engage others in efforts to promote life-enhancing change.
• Combine critical, empathic, and creative thinking with self-reflection to develop self-knowledge, self-realization, and expansion of consciousness.
• Bring innovation and creativity in their use of methods, moving beyond disciplinary and paradigmatic boundaries.
• Place their work within a whole person perspective including multiple contexts, and acknowledge their own biases and unchallenged assumptions.
• Understand, critically analyze, and conduct psychological research.
• Adopt a worldview, and locate oneself and one’s work in geo-historical and cultural contexts.
