Note: No degree level can be skipped even though you might have Bachelors or Masters degrees in other fields from other schools. Our curriculum is very unique and cannot be substituted with other types of education. We are bringing a new level of professionalism to metaphysics and spiritual careers. We must be sure that all of our graduates have the same knowledge as each other and that there is consistency in our quality of graduates. University of Metaphysical Sciences is a very highly respected school because of this consistency among our graduates and full spectrum training.

Bachelors Degree / Metaphysics, Metaphysical

You will receive your Bachelor's Degree within 6-8 weeks of completion of the written and audio lessons in the Bachelor's Degree curriculum. You must be in the program for 6 months and have satisfactorily completed all required coursework before you are eligible to receive this degree.

Masters Degree / Metaphysics, Metaphysical

You must have completed your Bachelors degree to earn your Masters degree. Once you have completed the masters level written and audio lessons, you are eligible to submit your Masters thesis. You must be in the program for 7.5 months to turn in your thesis and have been in the program for 10 months to receive your Masters degree. You will receive feedback on your thesis within 10-12 weeks of submission.  This curriculum usually takes a minimum of four months to complete.

This diploma leads to creating a more professional image for your books, classes, practice and other endeavors. You will also receive your Ministerial Ordination and your Practitioner's Certificate. The Practitioner's Certificate is necessary in some states for hands on healing or counseling. This protects your right to legally practice.

Doctoral Degree / Metaphysics, Metaphysical

You must have the bachelors and masters level requirements completed before you are eligible for the doctorate program. You must also have been in the program for a minimum of one year prior to be eligible for your doctorate. You must have already passed your thesis before you can turn in your dissertation for evaluation.

The Doctorate Degree has no written or audio lessons. The only work required is writing a 10,000 word doctoral dissertation (equivalent to two book chapters in length) on any metaphysical subject you would like to write about.  For instance, if you want the Ph.D. in Holistic Life Coaching, you must write your dissertation on a subject pertaining to life coaching. Otherwise, there are no limits to the subjects you can choose.

Once you have submitted your doctoral dissertation you will receive your final credentials within 6 to 8 weeks.  (How long it takes to write the dissertation is up to you.) You may obtain a second doctorate by submitting an additional dissertation after the first dissertation has been passed, and paying the appropriate fees.
