Program Overview

This rigorous, yet transformative, masters- level education is offered during evening and Saturday courses for onsite students. Students that choose our online format have the opportunity to learn from home with a few low residency seminar requirements. Our faculty and staff work together to help students embody their transpersonal, professional identity and to move towards meaningful livelihood.
We are committed to cross-cultural, transformative, learning experiences that embrace reflective scholarship and diverse ways of knowing. We provide a strong foundation in the theories, principles, and practices of transpersonal psychology with specializations in creativity and innovation, spiritual psychology, transformative life coaching, and a concentration in transpersonal ecopsychology.
The curriculum is designed as a transformative journey that includes scholarship, experiential learning, integration, transformation, spiritual disciplines, creative expression, embodiment, and application of transpersonal education. Faculty members facilitate whole-person instruction in a dynamic format within a close learning community. There is a high level of group discussion, participatory learning, and shared experiences.
** Students will attend two contemplative retreats during their second year of study.

“To make a transformative impact in your community, in the world, starts with transforming the individual. I was seeking an educational experience where I could transform myself and learn how to influence and support the positive transformation in others. That is exactly what I have found at Sofia University. Honestly, I found myself here.”

– Travis Gray / MATP Alumnus Class 17′
