Master's Degree, M.MT. Requirements
60 Credit Hours (comprised of 15 Credit Hours for first three books / written assignments -- 45 Credit Hours for all thesis-related work).
Once the student has successfully completed the entire Bachelors Degree program and Ministerial studies, they will begin the Masters program. The Masters study program covers Eastern and Western Philosophy in depth. Yoga, Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies will be studied.
The course explores the old and new age religious philosophies. The program introduces and guides the student through meditation practices and explores other forms of spiritual Altered states of consciousness, including prayer.
There are three initial required book readings and associated written assignments. The books you will use as part of your degree studies will be selected by discussion between you and your assigned Faculty Advisor. Please note that students are responsible for all costs associated with books they choose to purchase - regardless of the format.
Masters Thesis Project of 5,000 words minimum. Topic will be selected by the student and must be approved by the college.
The Masters Degree program is research-based and is adapted to fit your specific interests in the field.
Common M.MT. (Master of Metaphysical Theology) Questions:
Q. Can you send me a copy of the curriculum for the Master's Program?
A. As noted above, the Master's Degree Program (like the ICMT Doctoral Program), is customized to fit the goals and interest-area of the student. Upon entrance into the program, the student will discuss their goals with their professor - and will first decide which books will be used as part of the initial course work. Upon completion of those initial written assignments, the student will then complete and submit their Thesis Proposal and Chapter Outline for review and approval by the college. The Master's Degree Program does not include any pre-determined reading, or set courses, as part of the curriculum.
Q. I already have a Bachelor's Degree with another college / university. Can I begin with ICMT at the Master's level?
A. Due to the metaphysical-focus of the ICMT Degree studies, we encourage (and in many cases require) all incoming students to complete the full 3-degree program, regardless of whether they have past under-graduate, or graduate-level degrees in other areas. There are cases, however, where the student will have suffciently covered the subjects in our Bachelor's curriculum through past documented study and certification. View the B.MT. Curriculum Outline
Q. How long does it take to complete the Master's Degree Program?
A. That will depend on the individual student. On average, the course requirements are typically completed in a 9-month period. However, due to the "at-your-own-pace" nature of the program, the actual time needed will depend on how much time the student is able to devote to their research and coursework, as well as the complexity of their thesis project. Some may complete the work within a 6-month period, while others may take a year. There is no set deadline on completing the program, provided that the student is working at a reasonably steady pace.
