M.A. in Women's Spirituality
Format: Campus, Hybrid
The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology's (ITP) two-year, 54-unit weekend master's program in Women's Spirituality offers an advanced degree for women at a pivotal "crossroads" in their lives. The program promotes intellectual and creative expression and explores and integrates the intellectual, social, psychological, artistic, and spiritual aspects of womanhood. The Women's Spirituality program has at its foundation the values of transformative learning, with a view towards encouraging students to engage their local communities as change agents who live and work in accord with their own beliefs and values.
Our program's primary goals are to inspire social action and spiritual activism and to teach students how to think critically and work in ways that allow for personal transformation and consequent social change.
Our required courses and electives are small graduate seminars held in a cohort model and taught by supportive, diverse, leading practitioners in the fields of women's spirituality and spiritual activism, including authors, scholars, artists and ritualists. Required courses are offered on weekends, usually twice a month, and are scheduled to be completed in six quarters over two academic years (there are no summer classes). Also required is a thesis or equivalent major creative project as a culmination of a student's studies.
