Transpersonal psychology graduate programs are offered at many accredited universities in the United States. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that employment opportunities for psychologists will be best for people with Ph.D.s or master's degrees. BLS expects employment prospects for psychologists to grow by 11 to 26 per cent by 2018. Applicants to graduate programs in transpersonal psychology should expect stiff competition. Career paths include hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, health and wellness, couching and corporate management.
