Master of Arts in Integral Health

Learning Objectives

The core curriculum of the Integral Health M.A. program is designed to provide the graduate student with a foundation in Eastern and Western Philosophical traditions, consciousness studies, and the basics of research methodology. The student first completes the core master’s level courses in Integral Health and fulfills the remaining degree requirements by choosing elective courses in Integral Health or from other M.A. programs (Life Physics, Psychology and Comparative religion) in consultation with the program director.  After completion of the course work, the Master’s Thesis is the capstone project.


Degree Requirements

Fifty-six (56) graduate quarter units are required to complete the Master of Arts degree program in Integral Health. Thirty-two core curriculum graduate quarter units are earned in eight core courses designed to establish a basic foundation in the systems of philosophy and research methods. The remaining units are earned by completing elective courses drawn from Integral Health or other departments in consultation with the program director.
