Counseling & Psychology

Holistic Psychology

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Connect psychology with mind, body, and spirit.

Are you passionate about yoga and meditation? Do you want to help others experience balance and calm? Turn your passion for wellness into your future as a holistic healer.

Gain an understanding of how mind, body, and spirit are related. Use this knowledge to help others find relief from depression and trauma. In our Holistic Psychology program, you’ll study alternative healing practices from around the world.

You’ll be introduced to the concepts of health and wellness with an emphasis on the interaction of psychological, physical, and spiritual factors. Health is regarded as more than the absence of disease; it’s seen as cultivating beliefs and behaviors that promote wellness.

In your studies, you’ll explore your own beliefs about health by comparing them with those of people around the world. You’ll gain practical experience through internships, guided by our expert faculty. And you'll expand your career possibilities by choosing a specialization track in Art Therapy, Counseling, or Expressive Arts Therapy.

With opportunities for study abroad, you’ll be able to deepen your understanding of non-Western spiritual practices. Our Holistic Psychology bachelor’s degree program prepares you for entry-level careers in healthcare and related fields, or for continuing study in graduate or professional certificate programs.

 

“One idea I love from holistic psychology is that we are all connected, and on some basic level, we share a collective consciousness and unconsciousness.”
