Students enrolling in the Jungian and Archetypal specialization of the Depth Psychology program will attend all residential sessions at either the Ladera Lane or Lambert Road campuses in the Santa Barbara, California, area.

The Hybrid Learning Model Explained

This specialization takes advantage of online technology, which allows students to work and learn in their home environments in conjunction with residential sessions on the tranquil Ladera Lane campus. Classes begin online and meet during four-day residential sessions (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) once per quarter.

During these on-campus sessions, students have access to the Institute's extensive resources and are able to engage with their classmates and instructors face-to-face, combining lecture, discussion, and experiential and embodied learning. Residential sessions also allow time for community-building through shared meals, social events, film screenings, guest lectures, and circle councils.
