Graduate Program Director
The M.A. in Psychology is based on the existential-phenomenological-therapeutic approach. We offer a broad foundation in psychology, philosophy, and psychopathology rooted in the phenomenological and hermeneutical traditions within psychotherapy. Through exploring these in relation to psychotherapy and counseling, students come to appreciate the significance of therapeutic attitude and presence. An extensive practicum prepares students for success as psychotherapists in private practice, hospitals, and clinics
By drawing upon the insights of a number of disciplines and by laying the foundation for a therapeutic attitude, the program prepares students to enter the helping professions, obtain a license as a Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington, and/or pursue doctoral studies.
The 72-credit program is completed in two years.
