The Master of Arts in Psychology (MA) program is unique.

It has broadly humanistic orientation, with phenomenological and existential roots, and transpersonal approaches. This leads to a holistic view on human subjectivity, interaction, and spiritual experiences. The program is generalist and integrative, emphasizing both the historical and theoretical foundations as well as experiential dimensions and applications of psychology. The program thus integrates contemporary phenomenological, critical, depth, and community psychology perspectives.
