The unique and vibrant Masters in Psychology program at West Georgia honors our department’s roots in humanistic psychology. Our curriculum supports students in developing finer conceptual understanding of the field of psychology in general, and of human science psychologies in particular.

Our approach is integrative, emphasizing historical and theoretical foundations as well as experiential dimensions and applications of psychology, and integrating phenomenological, critical, depth, and community psychology perspectives. We engage one another in a process of conceptually-informed self-reflection and personal growth in a close community of diverse students and faculty.
