Pacifica is a unique and nationally recognized graduate school offering Ph.D. and Masters level degrees in Depth Psychology, Clinical and Counseling Psychology, and Mythological Studies.  Their Depth Psychology program is unique, combining traditional psychology with imagery, dreams, literature and myth.

Each year it holds a series of sold-out symposiums and lectures that draw audiences from around the world.


Pacifica offers a unique educational format that is well suited to students who wish to pursue graduate education while continuing their existing professional and personal commitments. For the fall, winter, and spring quarters students attend classes once a month during three-day learning sessions on campus or at a retreat center nearby. In most of the programs, there is also a one-week summer session. In between sessions, students continue their coursework through reading, research, and practicum experiences in their home settings.
