The CIHS Integral Noetic Sciences Program Explores the Intersection of Philosophy, Consciousness, and Science

We are 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. 

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

“As a university and research center, our mission is to illuminate humanity through research-informed programs that emphasize the importance of mind-body consciousness as a vital pillar within health and science education.” Dr. Thomas Brophy, President of CIHS, said. “Students who complete these scholarly pursuits are equipped with an invaluable education and the skills necessary to serve humanity better.” says Dr. Sean Esbjörn-Hargens, Dean of Integral Education and Integral Noetic Sciences Program Director. Dr. Sean Esbjörn-Hargens is hosting an informational zoom meeting about these programs on Monday, March 7th, 5-6:30pm PST/ 8-9:30pm EST.
