Subject: Where is the school in California...


Hi, I was trying to find out if it is possible to attend classes in person rather than take online courses because I would rather interact with people in person. Are 'in person' classes offered, and if so, where is the school located (the california one)?
Thank you!

Unfortunately we don't do in-person classes, altho we hope to offer some retreats and workshops someday soon. We also plan on having alumni and student retreats on an annual basis when we get something set up where people can come and enjoy each other's company. However, for now, we are a correspondence distance learning facility and cannot teach classes in person. If we taught in person, far fewer people could attend and the price would have to be sky high. We found that by doing it this way, we avoid having a lot of overhead, like insurance for live classrooms, maintaining a large expensive facility, and not having enough attendance, for who can drop their lives and move out here to study metaphysics? Only a rare few. So we have made it possbile through distance learning for many people to be able to attend UMS, even on the other side of the world. We'll try to accomodate that need for spiritual community someday, at least through some retreats and such It costs a lot of money to set something like that up, like buying land, to begin with, which doesn't come very cheap these days! But first things first! We are still just simply trying to find a facility to rent for a weekend retreat for the alumni and enrolled students next summer! (2007)

"Students pursue their undergraduate studies in UMS California, and graduate students pursue the Ph.D. doctorate degrees in UMS Minnesota branch. Students will earn their Bachelors, Masters and Doctor of Divinity degrees in California. Those who wish to obtain a Ph.D. study at University Of Metaphysical Sciences/Minnesota to finish their studies."

-- so... we can do this program in person now??

We do not have a physical location at this time for students. The wording on the website indicates where are offices or degrees are issued from. We do offer occasional retreats and we look forward one day ot having our own retreat center!
