Program Description:

The CIIS doctoral degree in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology (ITP) is one of the few programs in the world that offers an online PhD in whole-person approaches to psychology and that is a research-oriented program dedicated to systematic knowledge-building and the advancement of these fields.

Whole-person psychologies expand the horizons of conventional Western psychology to include mystical and spiritual experiences that transform and expand human consciousness, and by engaging in a comprehensive framework that includes the living systems of body, community, society, and the world as interconnected processes of evolution in a living, breathing cosmos. From this perspective, scientific work can be pursued with equal rigor as standard approaches, but it becomes possible to ask new and compelling research questions that lie close to the heart of what it is to be human.

This course of study will focus on experiential depth in the education process, integrative learning contexts, excellence in scholarship, and contributions to scholarly literature and scientific research. The ITP degree will offer focus areas in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology, in Consciousness Studies and Contemplative Neuroscience, and in Somatic Studies.
