Depth Psychology: MA Program


Larger text Smaller text Print this page


The Depth Psychology program is committed to a small class environment of 10 to 12 students for enhanced learning. Students enter in a cohort group and take all their classes together. The cohort becomes a rich learning environment and a supportive container for the transformative work of the program. Students range in age from their 20s to their 60s, with many midlife students.

Some students elect to present their classwork and thesis work at professional national and international conferences. The James L. Jarrett Award was initiated to recognize the professional accomplishments of these students with a monetary award.


Many students find that their creativity in expressive and artistic fields is ripened through the work in the program. Poetry, performance, ritual, movement, music composition are explored by students within the program.

A dipping down into the well becomes a rising up of creativity.
