Groundbreaking. Forward-looking. Transdisciplinary. Our graduate and undergraduate programs blaze new trails in the understanding and practice of psychology, mental health, health and wellness, spirituality, advocacy, and more.
Every student at CIIS has the opportunity to transform.
Our distinguished programs are grounded in wellness, healing, social impact, and higher consciousness — and frankly, they are unlike most you will ﬁnd in higher education today. We offer over 30 programs and professional certificates at the graduate and undergraduate level that span the ﬁelds of psychology, philosophy, spirituality, and the social sciences and humanities, while also transcending their disciplines.
Our Professional School of Psychology and Health offers programs in clinical psychology with an emphasis on depth psychology; integral counseling psychology that incorporates the body, mind, and spirit; somatic psychology and therapy, expressive arts therapy, drama therapy, and integrative health studies.
Our School of Consciousness and Transformation provides cutting-edge programs in philosophy, consciousness, and cosmology; ecology, spirituality, and religion; integral and transpersonal psychology, East-West psychology, and transformative leadership. Some programs were the ﬁrst of their kind, such as our clinical master’s degree program in community mental health and PhD in human sexuality.
Our Center for Psychedelic Therapies and Research (CPTR) was the first-ever university-affiliated certificate program, which continues to serve as the gold standard for safe, effective professional training.
