Psychology at Meridian University: An Integral Vision
I have been a friend of Meridian University for many years. Meridian is friendly, intelligent, intense, complex, and perfectly focused. It provides an education which is counter to trends, feeds the soul, and pleasures the intellect.
- Thomas Moore
Psychology may be viewed not only as an academic discipline but also as a vocation and profession. Meridian University's psychology curriculum is distinct in several ways:
1) Psychology at Meridian draws on several diversified orientations to psychology that have emerged during the mid- to latter part of the twentieth century, including:
- Depth Psychology
- Humanistic Psychology
- Transpersonal Psychology
- Somatic Psychology
- Spiritual Psychology
- Energy Psychology
2) Psychology at Meridian seeks to reclaim the soul as the primary concern of psychology, accessing soul as it is known to us through the imagination,
3) Psychology at Meridian draws on numerous knowledge domains that provide significant psychological knowledge, but that are not a recognized part of the conventional discipline and profession of psychology.
4) Psychology Program Graduate Degrees:
Concentrations available in the M.A., Psy.D., and Ph.D.:
- Somatic Psychology
- Movement/Dance and Expressive Arts
- Leadership and Social Transformation
- Integral Psychology
The Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology and the Ph.D. in Psychology (with the clinical concentration) are designed to meet the educational requirements for the State of California's Psychologist, Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) licenses (MFT and LPCC educational eligibility for the doctorates requires the student to engage in BBS-qualified fieldwork). The Master's in Counseling Psychology is designed to meet the educational requirements for the State of California's MFT and LPCC licenses. Students commuting from out-of-state must check with their local Board of Psychology to determine their state's requirements for licensure.
