About the Degrees

These programs take an integral, transpersonal approach to psychology. They propose an innovative way of learning and thinking, which goes beyond the basic structures of the rational mind to include the larger environment. They emphasize the interconnectedness between all aspects of reality and focus on the deep empathy needed for the health and healing of individuals and communities.

Why study Integral Transpersonal Psychology at Ubiquity?

These programs are for you if you wish to embody the knowledge of the Integral Transpersonal framework and apply it across all realms of your life and work. This approach will help you facilitate a transformation in your individual and our collective consciousness.

“Integral” derives from the Latin word integer, which means “whole.” Transpersonal refers to what goes beyond the “personal.” Thus, the aim of these programs are to examine our ontology beyond a neuro-scientific and cognitive paradigm and delve deeper into the integral approach, which takes into account the full spectrum of the psycho-spiritual development of human beings.

You are encouraged to explore the range of human experience by combining recent developments in psychology with other disciplines such as philosophy, the new sciences, environmental studies, and psychedelic research, as well as indigenous and perennial wisdoms. Throughout your learning experience you will immerse yourself in our integral learning system, which aims to cultivate your various intelligences and unleash your highest potential.

So, where do we start? At Ubiquity, we recognize that true learning starts with discovering ourselves and activating our unique gifts in service of our personal and professional goals. Embracing an Integral and Transpersonal standpoint empowers you to create transformation in yourself and the world. It enables you to transmute trauma into healing. This is the science of the soul and the psychology of the future.

Undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees are open for enrollment!

Next trimesters of 2020 begin on May 11th and September 13th
