What is the difference between the SMBI Summer Intensive Master’s Degree Program and the Psychology in Education, Master of Arts, with a concentration in Spirituality Mind Body?

The main difference between the SMBI Summer Intensive track and the MA in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Spirituality Mind Body is that the summer intensive is the delivery model.  The Summer Intensive model is just over a year, capped by two intensive summers with coursework in between, combining a blending of in person experiential immersion and closely supervised distanced learning.

The Master of Arts degree, with a concentration in Spirituality Mind Body  is intended for students interested in the field of Clinical Psychology and the mental health professions at large. This introductory-level graduate program provides foundational knowledge of psychopathology, treatment theories, and research methods. It is ideally suited for applicants who are looking to strengthen their background prior to applying to doctoral psychology programs. In addition, it is well matched for candidates who do not hold undergraduate degrees in psychology and who wish to gain exposure to the field.

Both degree programs result in a Master of Arts in Psychology in Education degree.
