Our Professors

The heart of any academic institution is it’s faculty. The faculty enhances the curriculum by applying years of experience, expertise and research to the lessons delivered to students. The International Metaphysical University faculty receive teaching appointments based upon distinguished contributions to their respective field of study. All of our instructors have decades of experience and practice behind their work. IMU is both proud and humbled to bring these masters of metaphysics into our classrooms.

    Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am inspired! Extremely useful information specially the closing phase :) I maintain such information much. I was looking for this certain information for a very long time. Thanks and good luck.

  2. I’m no longer certain the place you’re getting your information, however great topic. I must spend a while learning more or working out more. Thank you for excellent information I was in search of this info for my mission.

    I see nowhere on the site that states if your school is “accredited”. So that means the degrees are not recognized,and therefore worthless in society.

      I think we are very clear on the site that we are, indeed, non-accredited. But to say that a degree from IMU is “worthless” is to assert that real knowledge is worthless if it is unique in the world. I think that it is valuable to look at what accreditation is and what it is not. Accreditation is a process that says, “we will exchange credits with you.” In other words, if you come to IMU and you take a class, you cannot, presumably, take it to a regular USDE-accredited school and have them accept it as credit. (USDE = United States Department of Education approved). You also cannot get government loans for it, allowing you to go massively in debt (and which you can never get out from under because it is now illegal to declare bankruptcy on school debt). It also says that it meets the US governments idea of what an education should look like, and allows you to basically get the same education no matter where you go. It is a process that encourages “cookie-cutter” learning and “cookie-cutter people.”

      I think it is important to say that because we have NOT yet been USDE accredited, does not mean that our educational standards are low. In fact, our standards are set up to strictly adhere to the same credit hours and learning hours as accredited universities. In many, many instances, our professors are of a much higher quality than what you would find in regular colleges where the right degree is all it takes to get hired. Our professors are some of the best in the world, true experts on what they teach. This is something you don’t find at virtually any schools anywhere, including Ivy league schools.

      The other great value in being “non-accredited” is that we can teach the content that we want you to have, not what the government things you need to know. It gives us great freedom to explore topics that go beyond what you will find anywhere else. I think it makes us a better school and gives our students an edge on schools all over the country; our students get the opportunity to think outside of the box.

      I also think that its important to note that just because we are non-accredited, doesn’t mean we are a “diploma mill” as many people presume. The truth is that you will have to work your butt off to earn a degree from IMU. Yes, our prices are really, really low at around $5k for a degree as compared to the $100k you’ll pay at a vast majority of accredited schools, but you will work just as hard here as you do there.

      And in my humble opinion the true value of an education is “what did I learn?” Can I think critically? Did this expand my world in a way that makes me more of a person? And I can honestly say that if you complete a degree at IMU, the answer to all of these questions will be, most definitely, yes.

    I’m curious if any of you have read, studied works of or worked with Dr. Fred Alan Wolf and if so, what are your thoughts on his research of the links between Quantum Physics and Shamanism. He outlines this work in his book, The Eagle’s Quest.
