Antioch University-New England, set in the historic and picturesque town of Keene, N.H., houses 1,000 students who study management, psychology, sustainability, and more. It was founded in 1964, when Antioch College extended its scope to offer graduate programs at what was then dubbed Antioch-Putney. Now, Antioch University-New England exclusively offers 13 master’s degree programs and three doctoral degree programs which emphasize practical experience. The university stresses the importance of giving back to the community; it contributes roughly $30 million a year to the local and regional economy. Antioch is also part of a network of five universities across four states. Each location offers distinct academic programs.
Antioch University offers graduate programs within five areas: clinical psychology, applied psychology, education, environmental studies, and management. Applied psychology programs emphasize hands-on clinical experience. Education programs offer everything from workshops to certificates and graduate degrees. Environmental studies programs prepare students to work for environmental justice and reinvigorate science education. Ph.D programs are offered in environmental studies, clinical psychology, and marriage and family therapy. Regardless of the area, all of Antioch University’s programs emphasize social and community responsibility.
Antioch University-New England is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and has been since 1964. It has also received specialized accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education and the American Psychological Association for its marriage and family therapy and clinical psychology programs, respectively.
Admissions requirements and application processes vary for each program. Generally, master’s program applicants must submit the Antioch University New England Application Form, an official transcript, three letters of recommendation, and a non-refundable application fee. Applicants must also interview with a faculty member from the department in which they seek to enroll. Prospective students should review individual program requirements. For instance, an MBA in sustainability requires that students are proficient in Microsoft Excel, financial accounting, and microeconomics. Students will either need to take an Introduction to Microeconomics course or an exam to test their knowledge in this area. However, only students applying to the doctoral program in clinical psychology are required to take the GRE.
