The California Institute for Human Science offers a Master of Arts and Ph.D. program in Integral Noetic Sciences

ENCINITAS, CA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2022 / -- The California Institute for Human Science (CIHS), a Mind-Body Consciousness university bridging science and spirituality, is proud to offer students a Master of Arts and Ph.D. program in Integral Noetic Sciences. This innovative program uses scientific tools and methods to study the dynamic relationship between the mind-body-spirit and integrative human sciences. It excels at exploring philosophical, contemplative and esoteric insights into the nature of reality.

The Master of Arts program includes the historical study of consciousness, the philosophy of mind, contemplative and esoteric traditions, subtle energy anatomy, and an in-depth examination of our current historical moment and how noetic sciences can serve humanity in various applications. The M.A. program can be completed as a stand-alone program or used as preparation for the institute’s Ph.D. program.

Graduates of the Master’s Program will understand philosophical, scientific, and contemplative traditions as well as explore the nexus between spirituality and mental and physical wellness. The Ph.D. track in Integral Noetic Sciences includes the advanced real-world study of esoteric and transformative practices. Both tracks include the opportunity to perform quantitative research using our state-of-the-art scientific laboratory for consciousness science and biofield research.

The courses included in the Master of Arts program include Foundations in Integral Studies, Consciousness Studies, Spiritual Education, Study of Eastern and Western Religions: Metaphysics and Healing. Students are encouraged to explore the science of meditation, the comparative study of extraordinary experiences (e.g., near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, and psi experiences), and the use of mixed methods to study/research consciousness, subtle energies, and anomalous realities from multiple approaches.

Students in either the M.A. or Ph.D. track can choose from two optional concentrations:
Wisdom Design or Anomalous Studies.

Wisdom Design prepares graduates to design “wisdom systems” that serve the whole person within complex situations by applying principles of wellbeing economics, multicapital social impact, and wellness design to businesses and organizations as well as to social innovation and large-scale design projects.

Anomalous Studies prepares graduates to research the transformative potential and philosophical implications of anomalous realities (e.g., paranormal, multidimensional, cryptozoological, UFO and ET encounters, and psychedelic).
Students can also work with the Program Director to customize their program with individually designed concentrations and independent studies.
In offering an Integral Noetics Sciences program, CIHS furthers its commitment to a multi-dimensional academic experience that provides students with the guidance, wisdom, and mentorship necessary for personal and professional ascension.
