The university


Saybrook University is the world’s premier institution for humanistic studies. It is a unique place of student engaged learning in a rigorous course of study, offering advanced degrees in psychology, mind-body medicine, organizational systems, leadership, and human science. Saybrook’s programs are deeply rooted in the humanistic tradition and a commitment to help students develop as whole people – mind, body, and spirit – in order to achieve their full potential.

Saybrook University is growing to bring together new disciplines and apply its humanistic perspective to a broad spectrum of practical fields.
