    elements of your degree, you will be asked to schedule the Comprehensive
    Examination. Your primary mentor and a faculty member representing the
    secondary academic area conduct both the written and oral components of the
    examination. The oral component of the examination is normally completed by
    telephone conference and is intended to allow detailed investigation of your
    written responses.

    Thesis
    Proposal

    You are expected to prepare a formal
    proposal related to your concept for research under the direction of your
    primary mentor and according to University expectations. At a minimum, your
    research proposal should clarify the thesis statement and methodology
    (including the data gathering instruments and data analysis techniques) and
    provide an effective overview of the scholarly literature that sets the
    foundation for the thesis. Your research proposal should also include a brief
    manuscript outline that demonstrates how you will present in written form the
    various elements of the research project.

    Thesis
    Project

    Following approval of your thesis proposal,
    you will begin your research project. Your thesis may take the form of a
    traditional research project or it may be a major scholarly project of the type
    appropriate to the discipline. Whichever approach to the thesis is chosen, the
    resulting project must demonstrate mastery of a body of knowledge in the major
    field of study, be your original work and represent a meaningful contribution
    to the betterment of the human condition or an improvement to the professional
    field.

    Your thesis research may be conducted via
    quantitative, qualitative, or participatory action research. The body of your
    thesis manuscript, structured according to a set of approved manuscript
    guidelines, should exceed 100  double
    spaced, typewritten pages. If your thesis takes the form of a scholarly
    project, it must follow the guidelines provided by the University for such
    projects.

    Oral
    Review of Thesis

    Once you have prepared the thesis
    manuscript, you will be asked to schedule the formal review process. Your
    primary mentor and a faculty member representing the secondary academic area
    will conduct both the formal physical review of the thesis manuscript and the
    oral review of thesis.

    The physical review of the thesis
    manuscript usually takes the review committee four to six weeks. Each reviewer
    will prepare questions and commentary relative to your underlying review of the
    literature, the thesis methodology, the mechanics of your project, and your
    presentation of the findings, conclusions and recommendations.

    The Oral Review of Thesis is conducted
    under the direction of your primary mentor with the assistance of one qualified
    member of the faculty. The examination is carried out by telephone conference
    call and is designed to allow detailed investigation of your thesis. The
    faculty reviewers explore with you issues related to your thesis including
    methodology, review of literature and interpretation of the findings.
     

    One outcome of the thesis review process is
    a set of final expectations directing you through the remaining tasks for
    completing the thesis manuscript. Once your final manuscript is approved, you
    will submit the formal document to an approved bindery and later ship the bound
    thesis to the University for permanent archival storage.

  • This program teaches students to sense their Optimal Duration of  Existence and use that knowledge to master their lifespan potential.  The program is divided into two parts: Philosophy and Practice.  Philosophy consists of the scientific, spiritual and evolutionary foundations of this
    awareness.  We take the latest findings in neuroplasticity, quantum theory and epigenetics and show how they relate to understanding our lifespan.

    Practice consists of locating this perception in our body and applying it in everyday life.  We do this through Body Consciousness Techniques and Self-Management Skills.   This increased mental and physical awareness gives students a sense of balance and reduces stress and anxieties.  When we are able to see the entire structure of our life we are better able to
    deal with the everyday challenges we confront and be the best version of ourselves at any age.

  • The method employed is unique. It is based on decoding the global archetypical symbols with a view to helping people on an individual basis to seek out the knowledge they each need to widen their own perception. To accomplish its goal, the method calls on the eight (8) dimensions of self perception and the intelligence found within the Pythagorean geometric shapes.

    Those training in the method see their
    everyday life become richer through significant benefits. Indicatively, the
    following are only some of these benefits:

     “A healthy mind in a healthy body”: You
    learn how to take care of your body and how to improve the image you have of
    yourself

    All of your fears evaporate as you
    gradually acquire knowledge which, in turn, is power

    You learn how to find and implement
    alternative ways to resolving your problems

    You learn how to protect yourself by
    knowing how to say “no” and by training in self-protection techniques

    You widen your perception by breaking free
    from the confines of your fundamental beliefs

    You learn how to make real all of those
    thoughts, emotions, and desires you were not in a position to realize up to now

    You learn how to detect and manage your
    emotional blocks

    You delve into the art of communicating
