Holistic Studies

Salve Regina’s graduate programs in holistic studies, including the holistic clinical mental health counseling, holistic leadership and expressive and creative arts programs, develop skilled professionals who take a holistic approach to their work as counselors and leadership specialists. They recognize that the integration of body, mind and spirit is crucial to both a person and organization’s well being.

Graduate programs in holistic studies help students hone the communication, critical thinking, interpersonal and problem-solving skills needed to successfully facilitate change, healing and self-discovery and to lead individuals, groups and larger organizations in today’s ever-changing world.

The Holistic approach: helping students learn and understand how to observe, evaluate, and incorporate the integration of body, mind, and spirit into their personal and professional lives.

Our curriculum is based on a helix model consisting of five levels: personal development skills, one-to-one consultation skills, small system skills, large system skills and global system skills. Through a combination of core requirements and electives, students learn that the interconnection of persons and systems is an essential expression of wellness and effective functioning..

Upon completion of a holistic studies program, our graduates are prepared to work in a variety of fields, including business, education, government, human services and medical care giving. Students who complete the 60 credit Holistic Clinical Mental Health Counseling program are prepared to sit for the LMHC licensing exam.

Our program is prepared to meet the time demands of our working students. Classes are offered primarily in our Newport campus and online.
