The Doctoral Program and Its Invitation to Others
We invite applicants with strong theoretical backgrounds who wish to engage in human science research and praxis. We invite professionals who wish to deepen their theoretical background and re-engage with new forms of knowledge and research skills and to cultivate a different orientation toward their work. We invite those interested in integrative traditions, from those inspired by William James to those following the works of Thomas Merton, Rumi, Emmanuel Levinas, Bernard Lonergan, Jacques Lacan, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Martin Heidegger, feminist psychologies, transpersonal, humanistic, discursive , and critical traditions. We seek to learn from and teach those who wish to understand psychological research and action from a broader contextual and more integral approach.
We invite applicants to join us in blending alternative perspectives into a new pluralistic vision. Bringing together the deep commitments and methodological traditions founded in humanistic psychology, we take seriously the contributions of those who would integrate the psychological and spiritual, the mind and the body, and the social and the subjective. This is a program that wants to challenge the binaries that plague psychology through a rigorous dialectic of practice and reflection. If this is part of your passion, you will be interested in our program.
**Financial aid is available. However, the exact amount is dependent upon University funding and will include tuition waivers (some fees will still need to paid) and research and teaching assistantships. Such determinations will be made after acceptance into the program.
