UMS – University of Metaphysical Sciences




The University of Metaphysical Sciences (UMS), located in Arcata, California, offers courses in a variety of metaphysical topics such as meditation, mythology, reincarnation and alternative healing modalities. The school was created by Christine Breese, who holds a Doctor of Divinity Degree in Metaphysical Sciences and a Ph.D. in Metaphysical Counseling. As a distance learning school, UMS offers Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate degrees in Metaphysics and Metaphysical subjects.

Since 2004, UMS has operated as a school under its parent organization, the Universal Church of Metaphysics, a non- profit 501(c)(3) organization. The University of Metaphysical Sciences grants metaphysics degrees based on the metaphysical nature of the church, which is a specialized area of religion. Since UMS is a religious school and not a secular school, UMS has been accredited by the American Association of Medical Alternatives (AAMA) and American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).

UMS provides course material in a variety of subjects that has been synthesized from a variety of sources. Many writers have come together to create the curriculum of UMS. Each writer brings their area of expertise to the courses they write. The writers have compiled much of the knowledge based on their own studies and training, hundreds of reference books, and also collectively added vast amounts of real world experience as practicing counselors, teachers, and healers in their communities.

UMS operates as a distance learning facility and courses are completed on an independent basis by the student. While working at their own pace, the student is responsible and required to complete all their coursework in order to be granted a degree. A prescribed series of courses are completed in order to be granted the Bachelors degree. In addition to Masters level courses, a Masters degree is granted after submitting a thesis and having it approved by a committee. Each course is completed by submitting an exam, showing the student has learned the basic ideas provided in the course material. Once a student has completed their Bachelors and Masters coursework, a dissertation must be submitted and approved to receive a D.D. or Ph.D. degree.


Personal Review:

I (Lone) is also a student of UMS. What i can say is that it is great! Looking backwards, it is hard to believe how much i can get with such amount of tuition fee. More importantly, it is possible to get credentials in metaphysics with such affordable price!

Although i must admit that the readings are a lot, but i managed to get over them chunk by chunk. Besides, there is no really need to hurry, the university provide us 5 years at most to get the degree that we want, so that is the reason i can catch up with my regular university academic study at Ritsumeikan APU at the same time studying at UMS online.

The content of the course are generally good, and it covers a wide range of areas of metaphysics, i get to know many areas that i didn’t know exist before (even though I have been into metaphysics quite several years before I enrolled). Each course reading materials also provide ‘Review of Literature’ and ‘Bibliography’ that helps me searching for quality good books to study deeper into the particular subject. Every month I get 4-5 courses in which each are from different types of metaphysical studies such as Consciousness, World Religion, Meditation Skills, Intuitive skills, Metaphysical Health Study and such, so I can say that the courses are done in a way that is balanced for the student metaphysical studies.

Cheap and affordable but not of low quality, flexibility in study, study anytime anywhere you want at your own pace, get into professionalism, and many more benefits. The university also provide support, forums and recently as of this writing also established their own account at Facebook. Cool huh. Be very welcome to join me!

    Well, doing spiritual work long-distance is fine, though if possible, one should try doing spiritual work as a group as the energy would likely to multifold and synergized.
