The global masters 19.0 unit stand-alone Certificate Program in Transpersonal Ecopsychology empowers students to live in respectful relationship, in alliance with the natural world, and to bring this perspective into their daily and professional lives.
At the core of this certificate is the assumption that Earth is a creative, living entity and that humans are woven into the tapestry of all life. Sustainability and wholeness are fostered as humans more fully experience themselves as a part of nature and embody ecological consciousness.
This 4-8 quarter certificate program is grounded in worldviews, theories, and practices associated with embodied spirituality, eco-spirituality, eco-literacy, and transpersonal ecopsychology. Students will awaken to more conscious awareness of place, richness of life, and the cycles found in self and nature. They will apply their understanding of transpersonal ecopsychology, systems thinking, sustainability, sacred ecology, nature-based programs, and ecological practices in service to the broader community.
This program is housed in the G-MATP academic offerings. These classes are open to Masters and Ph.D. students at Sofia University and recent graduates. Qualified students with Master’s degrees in areas related to psychology, human development, education, healthcare, and the like must be officially admitted into the Global Master’s Program.
This stand-alone certificate program is considered a nonacademic program but can be integrated into the G-MATP program at a later time. Students applying for this certificate must go through the formal interview process. Eligible students may apply for advancement into the Global Master’s Program upon completion of the Certificate. Please contact the Admissions Office for further details.
