M.A. - Consciousness in Action

at Southwestern College

The M.A. Consciousness in Action program at Southwestern College offers a transformational approach to personal growth and spiritual development. It prepares students to integrate a holistic and experiential learning model into their daily lives to effect change within and without. The program prepares graduates to affect change in their communities and/or field of study through imaginative, creative learning methods.

Students will learn to identify and transform systemic power structures, internal blocks that limit authentic connection, and unconscious patterns that stifle awareness and, therefore, eliminate true choice.
