Are you ready to take the next step?

Friday, October 2, 2020 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Are you ready to take the next step and earn your M.A. or Ph.D. Degree? Due to (COVID-19), Pacifica has decided to transition our scheduled on-campus event and offer a virtual information portal with interactive webinars and virtual breakout sessions with faculty. We welcome you to dive deep while practicing social distancing and learn about our various degree programs in the tradition of Depth Psychology, informed by the teachings of C.G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, Marion Woodman, James Hillman, and others.

When beginning your journey toward richer knowledge of depth psychology, you may need guidance to decide which program, professors, and place would be the best fit for you. As Pacifica president Joseph Cambray says, “Our Pacifica Experience Days give potential applicants an opportunity for a brief but rich immersion into student life. As Pacifica’s president, I happily welcome attendees, along with our provost. This is followed by a faculty presentation on a topic of broad interest, which replicates the graduate virtual classroom experience.” This gives you the opportunity to experience what it feels like to be in a virtual classroom, having a dialogue with a scholar who has made depth psychology their life’s work.

Pacifica is an accredited graduate school offering degrees in Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, the Humanities and Mythological Studies. The Institute has two beautiful campuses nestled between the foothills and the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara. All of Pacifica’s degree programs are offered through low-residential learning sessions that take into account vocational, and life commitments. Students come to Pacifica from diverse backgrounds in pursuit of an expansive array of academic, professional and personal goals.

Pacifica’s $75.00 application fee will be waived for all attendees.

This information day provides an excellent opportunity to:

  • Experience Pacifica’s unique interdisciplinary graduate degree programs through faculty-led, program-specific online information sessions and presentations.
  • Hear from Pacifica alumni about their experience and what they are doing with their degrees.
  • Learn more about admissions procedures and financial aid.
  • Engage in ongoing dialogue and community exchange throughout the day with Faculty and Alumni via an online information portal.
