Summer Integrative Participants

COURSES AND DURATION

The P.S.I. course has a duration of two years, including a period of supervised practical experience in psycho-spiritual therapy. The programme is designed to culminate in the award of a Master’s degree in Psycho-Spiritual Therapy for those candidates who desire a university degree. There is however provision for candidates who do not desire a university degree at the end of the programme of study. Such candidates will be exempted from writing the final comprehensive examinations and the Thesis, but not the ongoing evaluation and assessments that are an integral part of the course programme. Negotiations are nearing completion for the formal accreditation of the Institute’s course of study with the Catholic University of Eastern Africa.
