Contemplative Degree Programs and Concentrations

Contemplative Practice in Higher Education

Prospective students often ask us for information on accredited undergraduate and graduate programs of study with a “contemplative” emphasis. This page is our attempt to list them.

Please note that this list only includes degree-granting programs which specifically identify “contemplative,” “holistic,” “integrative,” or “mindfulness”-based approaches as the subject of study.

Be aware that in addition to these programs, there are many individual course offerings across the academic disciplines, and at all types of institutions, which integrate contemplative approaches. It is not possible for us to maintain a list of these courses, but many are taught by the members of the Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education.

If you have suggestions for improving this list, please contact us with your edits and additions.
