Culture and Spirituality
“Life changing! I didnít even know what cosmology meant as I started this program. My view of the earth and the cosmos is not wide and inclusive. The classes and course work is not only challenging but fun and creative. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in expanding their faith and personal world.Ē

Master's Degree in Culture and Spirituality at The Sophia Center

The Sophia Center in Culture and Spirituality offers a Masters of Arts degree in both a nine-month Semester Format and a two-year Weekend Format (that includes our Summer Institute), a Certificate program and a one-semester Sabbatical.

The program was born out of a deep and enduring desire to discover and celebrate a healthy and hopeful approach to life on planet earth.

Our curriculum evokes in each student a listening heart. We celebrate Earth (our relationship to the wider community of life), Art (the creative and unique gifts of every participant), and Spirit (the transformative energy that permeates all aspects of creation).

The Sophia Center has opened not only doors, but pathways that look like freeways; road maps for the journey ahead . . . I am anxious to learn more of the dance.

—Ron San Miguel
Sophia Center semester student

Through a dynamic integration of science that reveals the origins and ultimate mystery of life, mysticism that celebrates the sacredness of creation and the experience of divinity through our senses, and art that creates wonder and beauty through images, movement, poetry and song, the Sophia Center is dedicated to make possible a more mutually enhancing world.

We understand spirituality as foundational to all careers. We invite you to join us as we venture forth to create a society of compassionate engagement--a world of wonder and beauty that will invigorate your soul and make possible a future of planetary peace.
