The University of Philosophical Research


The University of Philosophical Research emerged from, and is a DBA of, the Philosophical Research Society, a nonprofit organization founded in 1934 by Manly Palmer Hall for the purpose of providing thoughtful persons rare access to the depth and breadth of the world’s wisdom literature.

The University offers two nationally accredited Master’s programs (M.A. in Consciousness Studies and M.A. in Transformational Psychology) and a newly approved Bachelor of Arts program in Liberal Studies.  All of our degree programs are online, allowing us to provide our unique approach to higher education on a global scale.

Building upon the goals and intents of the PRS, our academic programs stress the need for the integration of philosophy, psychology and culture to help enable individuals to develop a mature philosophy of life, to recognize their individual responsibilities and opportunities and to understand and appreciate their place in the unfolding universal pattern.
