About Saybrook University

Saybrook University was established to challenge the idea that human beings needed to be broken down into parts and isolated from the rest of the world to be understood. Instead, our founders declared that human beings are complex, and to understand them, one must understand the interconnectivity of everything that they experience. Committed to helping students achieve their full potential, our community is deeply rooted in this humanistic tradition.

The College of Social Sciences offers M.A. and Ph.D. programs that provide students with hands-on experience and mentoring from faculty who are active and experienced in their respective disciplines. Committed to an approach of understanding individuals, groups, couples, and families within their broader social and cultural context, graduates learn to understand the interconnectivity of various systems and to make significant change. Applying what they have learned to a variety of fields, graduates can find successful careers in business, nonprofit, government agencies, and private practice.
