Since many CIIS program names include the word “psychology”, this is not helpful for specifying one program in particular (but is useful to find multiple psychology-related programs in one search). Program names have changed over time; the currently active CIIS programs offering a doctoral degree are:

  • Anthropology and Social Change
  • Asian and Comparative Studies
  • Clinical Psychology
  • East-West Psychology
  • Philosophy and Religion
  • Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness
  • Transformative Learning and Change
  • Transformative Studies
  • Women’s Spirituality
Please note that there are many more historical program names that you can search. Please contact us via e-mail at askref [at] ciis [dot] edu should you need our help finding a particular dissertation.
