Philosophy Cosmology and Consciousness MA and PhD

The Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness (PCC) PhD and MA programs aim to create the leadership necessary for profound, progressive, transformation of social institutions and individual consciousness. PCC is dedicated to re-imagining the human species as a mutually enhancing member of the Earth community.

PCC attracts intellectually engaged individuals who are striving to find meaningful ways to develop their gifts to serve the future of the world. Drawing upon some of the most powerful ideas of Western intellectual and spiritual traditions, together with insights from Asian spiritual philosophies and indigenous worldviews, the PCC faculty has constructed a multidisciplinary course of study to help accelerate each student's journey into his or her particular leadership role.

The program aims to inspire thoughtful action by emphasizing the importance of linking theoretical study and reflection to practical intervention in the world. The program supports those called to meet the Earth community's unprecedented evolutionary challenges by offering a rigorous and supportive learning community where participants can find their voice and vision as leaders.
