My experience with Viridis Graduate Institute has been the most fulfilling educational experience of my life thus far! I was seeking a program that would support my understanding of humans as ecological creatures, and the school’s approach delivers on that and beyond. VGI successfully combines the convenience of online education with a level of regard for each student and faculty that engenders a deep sense of community. – Doctor of Arts Program.

Just finishing an MA at Viridis and my experience with the instruction, philosophy, and training has been excellent. Highly recommended for professional or personal development. – Master of Arts Program.

My experience at Viridis Graduate School was transformative in many ways. I am leaving as a more developed researcher and scholar and have undergone a psychological transformation with a major change in thought patterns and values while working on my Doctoral Capstone project. I was allowed to create a unique and meaningful project that pushed the boundaries of traditional research into arts-based research and deep mapping protocols. As I continue my work as an Ecopsychologist and Artist, I will always be indebted to Viridis Graduate Institute for allowing and supporting my explorations into this pioneering research approach. – Doctor of Arts Program.

What Viridis offers is so unique and very needed in education. I loved my time as a student with them.The curriculum is truly on the leading edge of educational evolution towards participation with all life. Don’t hesitate to join if you are looking for an affordable degree with a quality curriculum. – Doctor of Arts Program.

Since I started VGI, I have learned and rediscovered a person that I did not know I could be. I perceive everything around me differently. I am more attuned to the world. The learning material is not just applicable academically, but it fits in every aspect of my life. VGI has challenged me in ways no one has ever done. Thank you, Viridis.  – Master of Arts and Doctor of Arts programs.

My ability to perceive the natural world that I walk through daily is a gift I once took for granted. Now, nature in its many forms is my partner in the continuing development of my psychology. Diving into ecopsychology has connected me to a wealth of generational narratives and behaviors that have been unconscious and destructive. There is no better time in history than now to be a part of changing the course of civilization through dedication to the preservation of our earth and all species. Humankind needs more leaders to step forward who can use a transdisciplinary toolbox of Ecopsychological solutions. Few graduate programs can offer an online program as comprehensive and well-rounded as what I have received from Viridis Graduate Institute. – Master of Arts and Doctor of Arts programs.

I came to Viridis with drawings, paintings, poetry, and unanswered questions. They were answered and then some. I am so thankful for Viridis’ curriculum, wise professors, wonderful classmates, and the overall mentorship of this program. Not only will you learn ecology but you will explore the depth of the psyche within nature and the imagination. The 5 Ecopsychological principles have guided my processes and grounded them into practical application. I will always be grateful for my experience, and I will forever be a part of this community. – Doctor of Arts Program.

Viridis Graduate Institute’s doctoral program is a rich addition to advanced studies in the field of ecopsychology. The scope of study while remaining anchored in ecological realities and principles vastly broadens the terrain with its emphasis on depth psychology, mythology, cultural studies, and philosophy. Coupled with intense self-reflective practices, regular live online classes, and exceptional faculty, this program delivers a top-notch educational experience. In summary, this program will result in a new kind of ecopsychologist, one who knows much less than he/she did upon entrance into the program and hence has become immeasurably wiser. – Doctor of Arts Program.

Wanting to find deeper meaning in my life and work, I had been looking for an ecopsychological community with a heart for removing barriers of communication within and between the individual and the soul of the world. I found that through the Executive Program at Viridis I learned and practiced a profound, creative, and empathic way of seeing my interconnectedness with all of life. I also appreciated the live online video classroom because it too was a conscious effort to remove barriers of communication among the students and with the professor. Overall, the Executive course is a modern, relevant, and evolutionary program that has empowered me to confidently change, grow, and lead. – Doctor of Arts Program.
