Master of Arts in Consciousness and Transformative Studies
The Master of Arts in Consciousness & Transformative Studies program provides a 68-unit curriculum with courses that challenge students’ beliefs, examine the relationship between consciousness and the world, and explore new possibilities for personal, social, and global transformation.
Courses in new physics, environmental sustainability, and neurophilosophy provide a new scientific paradigm for the study of consciousness and transformation. Personal growth and creativity are explored through courses in myth, symbol, dreams, and indigenous knowledge. The examination of East/West traditions presents different paths to spiritual awareness. The nature of intelligence, insight, and human consciousness is explored through courses in transpersonal and integral psychologies.
Students may choose 5–7 units of electives plus an additional three units of self-exploration from various programs throughout the University. To complete the degree program, students can choose either a four-unit thesis or a two-unit integrative project.
Students who wish to focus their studies more deeply in one area may elect to declare an optional specialization in one of the following areas: dream studies; east-west philosophy and religion; science and consciousness; culture and consciousness; and consciousness and healing.
