This two-year M.A. Program in Engaged Humanities & the Creative Life utilizes online technology so students can work and learn in their home environments in conjunction with residential sessions. Four times each year, students gather on the Pacifica Campus for an expanded four-day retreat.
At Pacifica Graduate Institute, we believe the wisdom traditions of the humanities and depth psychology influence the arts and new media, and this influence and confluence can help inform and enrich the creative life.
The program invites students in the visual, performing, narrative, studio, and media arts; the creative side of advertising, marketing, and product development; teachers of art, literature, and the humanities; professionals in creative fields such as architecture, interior design, and fashion, and the film, television, and music industries; and any others who want to live and work more creatively, or foster creativity in themselves and others. It combines intellectual rigor with creative expression, encouraging dialogue amongst students and faculty working in all mediums in an effort to deepen and broaden our individual and collective potential to make our contribution to the humanities.
Applications are being accepted for spring 2014 in this program.
