The Mindfulness Studies Certificate Program will prepare you to apply the potentially transformative power of mindfulness in your professional and personal roles.
The 15-credit Advanced Professional Certificate in Mindfulness Studies will provide you with a strong foundation in the history, theory, and practice of mindfulness so that you may integrate mindfulness into your professional practice and personal life.
This program is especially suitable for health and wellness professionals, social workers, counselors, and educators who wish to develop their own practice of mindfulness and share these practices with clients and colleagues.
The four courses in the Certificate are focused on applications of Mindfulness Studies across various fields of endeavor. Together, they provide students with a broad foundation in mindfulness, and serve as a springboard for students wishing to apply mindfulness in professional settings.
