Joint Tamalpa/Meridian Programs in Psychology

The Tamalpa Institute and Meridian University offer joint programs that enable students to complete a graduate degree in Psychology at Meridian while concurrently completing a certificate program at Tamalpa Institute.

The degree programs which offer this concentration are:

• MA in Psychology
• PhD in Psychology
• Psy.D. in Psychology

Both the Psy.D and the Ph.D. meet the educational requirements for psychologist licensure in California.

 


Coursework Time/Academic Credits


The M.A. involves two years of coursework; the Psy.D. and Ph.D. involve four years of coursework. During each year of the program (2 years for the M.A., 4 years for the Ph.D. & Psy.D.), students can substitute 100 hours of Tamalpa coursework for 10 quarter credits of Meridian coursework, which entails taking the Tamalpa course hours as well as completing Meridian academic reading and writing assignments.


Learning Format

The learning formats at Meridian University make graduate education in psychology accessible to non-traditional students with family and professional commitments. Students in the joint program can participate in either Meridian's Blended Learning format (consisting of online learning and a week-long session in the Winter and Summer) or the Monthly Format (primarily face-to-face coursework over three weekends in each of the fall and spring quarters, a week-long session in the Winter and Summer, and a small portion of online coursework).


Scholarship Program for Tamalpa/Meridian Students


Students admitted to both Meridian and Tamalpa are eligible to apply for a $5,000 scholarship, established especially for this program. Click here for general information on Meridian Financial Aid.
