Metaphysical Schools - University of Philosophical Research

Upon my search of various metaphysical schools, I came upon a college by the name of University of Philosophical Research. After looking into this college, I was very impressed with the studies of metaphysics and consciousness that it has to offer.

I'm thinking of perhaps applying for a degree program there myself, should I decide to take my studies further.

Please note, this is a graduate level college and you do need a Bachelor degree with a GPA of 3.0 from an accrediting University or College in order to be accepted for admission into the school. More on this later.

This school is different in many ways to other metaphysical schools. Here are some of the things that stood out the most:

An Actual Physical Location

Unlike other metaphysical schools that offer online learning, UPR(University of Philosophical Research) has an actual physical location located in Los Angeles. I used the Google Street view location of 3910 Los Feliz Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90027 to confirm this. Check it for yourself. These folks obviously mean business, and they take their studies and research very seriously.

Quality Professors and Accreditation

While I can't speak for all of the professors and teachers at UPR, I did recognize a couple of the names, one of those being Amit Goswami Ph.D who has several popular books out on consciousness such as The Physics of the Soul and The Self-Aware Universe.On a side note, UPR has been given accreditation by the DETC, which stands for Distance Education and Training Counsel.

Two Different Degree Programs

Some metaphysical schools only concentrate on one degree program and the topics are often very shallow and not well researched.

UPR on the other hand offers two different degree programs: A Master of Art Degree in Consciousness Studies as well as as Master of Arts Degree in Transformational Psychology. Both programs offers an extensive and in depth curriculum which leads me to my next point.


Another thing I like about The University of Philosophical Research compared to other metaphysical schools is the subject matter. Based upon their course descriptions, they really seem to get in depth on each subject and don't just skim across the top on a particular subject and move on.

Here are just some of the subjects they cover:

  • Consciousness
  • Science and Spirituality (probably would be my favorite topic)
  • World Religions
  • Physics of the Soul
  • PSI
  • Dream Studies

Concluding View

If you are very serious about your metaphysical and philosophical studies, and don't mind paying a hefty price for the education, then this school might be for you.

Remember,this is a graduate school and unless you have a Bachelor degree with a GPA of 3.0 from an accrediting University or College, you won't be accepted. I'm sure they do this to steer away those who have only a casual interest in metaphysics

For those who are just interested in being educated on general metaphysical topics, there are plenty of other metaphysical schools for that purpose that you can look into.

One last comment, usually if I see a college that has high tuition, it can either be good or bad depending on the college. In this case it seems to be good based upon what the school has to offer, including all of the reasons mentioned above. Even though the cost is high, the tuition still remains much lower than what major universities charge these days.

If you are one who is seriously interested in pursuing metaphysical studies from a career standpoint, UPR seems like your best bet if you do indeed qualify for their admission requirements. But please, like any decision, you need to do your own due diligence and visit their website and speak with them before you spend your hard earned money.
