The University of Metaphysics Celebrates 50 Years!

It's hard to believe that the University of Metaphysics has been around for 50 years. That would easily make it the longest running metaphysical college in operation today. Like many other non-secular online metaphysical colleges, UOM has had its fair share of criticisms and skeptics.


Before I get to the meat of what I've found with The University of Metaphysics, I want to touch a bit on some general criticisms of all metaphysical colleges.

The fact of the matter is, any metaphysical college that operates online and isn't accredited by a national accrediting giant is going to be criticized. For many of the colleges, the criticisms are warranted, especially when the metaphysical college in question makes high promises of employment once a metaphysical degree is obtained. Not all of them do this however.

In my opinion, the problem that many people have with the University of Metaphysics as well as some other metaphysical colleges is due to the non-secular nature of the education that's taught.

What many people need to understand though is that schools such as this one teach subjective philosophy and metaphysics. These type of metaphysical degrees should not be equated to degrees earned at Harvard or any other nationally accredited college. It's like apples and oranges and it's not fair to either type of university to compare the degrees.

Many people, such as myself, are interested in schools like this from a personal development point of view. As an example, one may pay several thousand dollars to attend a Tony Robbins seminar for personal development means, while another may enroll in a metaphysical college for the same end goal. Which way is right and which way is wrong? Neither way is wrong. Unlike reading random metaphyhsical books on your own, a metaphysical college may offer one a more disciplined approach to self development, and also allow them to perhaps become self-employed in the metaphysical field.


Like many metaphysical schools, the University of Metaphysics offers 3 degrees:

  • A Bachelors Degree
  • A Masters Degree
  • Doctoral Degree

The Bachelors and Masters programs provide you with materials to read and study as well as final exams. The Doctoral Degree program offers various areas for you to specialize in.

Doctorate Degree Speciality Examples:

  • Doctor of Metaphysical Science, Msc.D
  • Doctor of Metaphysical Counseling, Mc.D
  • Doctor of Ministry, D.Min
  • Doctor of Divinity, D.D
  • Doctor of Holistic Ministry, Mh.D
  • Metaphysical Hypnosis, Mhyp.D
  • Metaphysical Psychology, Mpsy.D
  • Biblical Interpretation, D.D
  • Doctor of Philosophy, D.Phil

Check with the University or visit their Website to find more descriptions of the above specialities. Contact info is listed below.


The cost for this college is fairly reasonable. For those financially strapped, you can opt in for the $25.00 payment play a month for 48 months, which brings the Total Tuition to $1,290.00. There are other options available as well. Pay it all up front and then it comes out to $990.00.

Prices are as of 04/04/2010. As always, they are subject to change, and according to the Website, these prices may not last, although their Website has been saying this for many months now.

Concluding View

The University of Metaphysics has a friendly customer service staff, as I've spoke with them a few times, and it's comforting to know that the school has been around for 50 years.

The 50 year factor is pretty incredible for any online university. As I always say, check out their Website and look at the curriculum and decide for yourself if it's something you want to pursue from a self-development standpoint. Of course it's also kind of cool to have a diploma hanging on your wall displaying the discipline and commitment you had in your studies. Who knows, you may find a way to take what you learned and apply it to a non-secular career.
