“At this moment, I describe my Sophia Experience as: A life changing experience. In the Wisdom Circle I experience the connectedness that the Sophia seminars have awakened in me intellectually. My awareness of this connectedness in present in my consciousness throughout each day. Thank you, Universe, for this gift!”

Master of Arts in Culture and Spirituality

Two-year, Weekend Program Format

The Sophia Center's Weekend program enables working adults to attain a master's degree in two years while delving deeply into the converging wisdom traditions that are the source of a new creation story.

It covers the same themes as the nine-month residential program and is structured around four stimulating weekends per semester, as well as the Summer Institute.

The weekend program attracts people from throughout the country who pursue expanding knowledge and an advanced degree while meeting their on-going vocational and personal commitments.

The unique weekend format allow students to reflect upon and apply the curriculum to the context of their working lives.
