Caveat emptor! This is a for profit school, though they are registered as a non-profit. Professors are more concerned about their reputations and keeping up appearances than your furthering your career. The program is led by one such individual of the latter description. Choose another program where the people are genuine, or as close to it as possible.The remainder of the staff are mere handsmaids in the scheming of these ill-intentioned individuals. Good luck with ...
It's a long way from the 70's

I began the program when it still had vestiges of its first incarnation as the Fielding Institute. It was idealistic about adult learning, but Many students couldn't- or wouldn't get finished quickly enough. Looking back, it was a remarkable and transformative experience, but I wish I had trusted myself to put myself into a brick& mortar school, making my professional and philosophical affiliations after i got my degree. Fielding has changed over the years to ...

They barely got off probation. They will not reveal to students the conditions to stay off it. They absolutely cook the books for their numbers they report to APA for practicums and internships. I met many fine people here, but found the administration to be pretty shady, and at times, unethical. There are many cult-like experiences at Fielding that you not find at a traditional school. It is bizarre. They have other students watch other ...
Excellent program if you are organized, motivated, and have superior time management skills

Was able to work full time (in the field as an MFT) while getting my PhD from Fielding in four years. Couldn't do a traditional program because my work schedule (needed to pay for the PhD!) wouldn't permit unlimited hours. It required a LOT of work and organizing but is definitely do-able. I liked having professors that were experts in their field from all over the US. Attending as many national on-sites as possible (my ...

I was initially skeptical about attending a non-traditional PhD program, but found Fielding to be a great choice. The faculty was outstanding and the overall experience far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend the program to anyone - even those considering attending a traditional in-residence program.
Do Not Attend

This school does not support the student. Only attend if you can work solely on your own and have enough ties to the professional community to find your own practica and internship.

Overall average. I have nearly completed my PhD. Tuition has almost doubled in the last ten years, with no improvement of any kind in quality. Good = they strive to make a difference in the world. Bad = very expensive, hard to get emails or calls returned, staff is mostly indifferent. Suggestion: NO ONE will be an advocate for you except yourself. If you decide to go, get in, make a plan and get out ...
