Sofia University’s Dream Studies Certificate is offered in our Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. It is one of the few Dream Studies certificate programs presently offer at an accredited university in the United States.
The program has an interdisciplinary orientation, exploring dreams from transpersonal, integral, psychological, scientific, mythological, spiritual, religious, and cross–cultural perspectives. Courses cover subjects that include sleep, dreams, and states of consciousness; ordinary, extraordinary, and anomalous dreams; dreams as they relate to health and creativity; a practicum in dream-sharing with individuals and groups; personal mythology and dreamwork; and a final Certificate integration group presentation.
