Excellent but Rigorous
September 19, 2014
Fielding is an exceptional and unique institution. Faculty are free-thinkers and accomplished clinicians. Students tend to be very friendly to one-another and supportive. I found the experience to be very bonding and made wonderful contacts and friends. I lack the patience to provide an in-depth review but i did want to comment of some of the negative comments. 1) It is important to remember that simply because Fielding is "different" they will get disproportionate criticisms. ...
Impressive Program: Not entirely online
June 21, 2014
My experience at Fielding thus far has been tremendous. The program is rigorous, the faculty are great, and I love my peers. Coming from an ivy league master's program I was apprehensive before applying. I did some research, spoke with faculty and students and felt Fielding's program was the only one for me. I am confident I made the right choice. It has been an exceptional academic, personal, and professional experience. The faculty are truly ...
I am a Fielding Graduate
March 5, 2014
I graduated from Fielding and let me just say that I WOULD NOT recommend this school to my worst enemy. Way too many problems and issues that I care to write about. They paint a pretty picture when you initially start, but once you're hooked - it becomes an absolute nightmare.

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
December 1, 2013
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
June 5, 2013
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 ...
