Graduate Programs in Integral Health

Groundbreaking Studies in Holistic Health

According to the tridimensional theory put forth by CIHS founder Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama, a human being is a synergistic, integrated complex composed of body, mind and spirit. Dr. Motoyama believed that all dimensions are equally real and relevant to the study of human existence. Therefore, in order to fully understand the complexity of the human experience, we must study the three dimensions – body, mind, and spirit – as an inseparable whole.

The Master’s and Ph.D. in Integral Health represent one of CIHS’ most innovative programs, combining the best of all of our programs to create a hybrid where you design the concentration. It is unique in its interdisciplinary focus with the curriculum emphasis still on consciousness and a mind, body, spirit integrated thought and value system.

 

A Master’s or Doctorate in Integral Health is appropriate for practitioners, scientists, writers, researchers, D.O.’s, chiropractors, and therapists of all types, among others, to expand on their knowledge of holistic health and the mind, body, spirit connection as it relates to consciousness and health. It increases the student’s awareness of such higher-level studies of subtle energy and many find it useful for marketing practices, workshops, and increasing authorship legitimacy.

The core curriculum of the Integral Health M.A. program is designed to provide the graduate student with a foundation in Eastern and Western Philosophical traditions, consciousness studies, and the basics of research methodology. The student first completes the core master’s level courses in Integral Health and fulfills the remaining degree requirements by choosing elective courses in Integral Health or from other M.A. programs (Life Physics, Psychology and Comparative religion) in consultation with the program director.  After completion of the course work, the Master’s Thesis is the capstone project.

Doctor of Philosophy in Integral Health

The Ph.D. program in Integral Health has been designed to foster the following aims: (1) To present a course of study which allows for the development of a sophisticated grasp of convergences and divergences in Eastern and Western thought in medicine, science, religion, and philosophy, and for synthetic-integrative possibilities, (2) to provide training in a range of devices which yield physical data bearing upon manifestations of body-mind-sprit in operation, (3) to apply and expand scientific forms of investigation to incorporate study of “paranormal” aspects of human life, and to show how such phenomena can be assimilated into religious thought and philosophy, (4) to provide an opportunity for students with the appropriate educational preparation to conduct a substantial research project which contribute to the  goal  of Integral Health.

 

Fifty-six (56) graduate quarter units are required to complete the Master of Arts degree program in Integral Health. Thirty-two core curriculum graduate quarter units are earned in eight core courses designed to establish a basic foundation in the systems of philosophy and research methods. The remaining units are earned by completing elective courses drawn from Integral Health or other departments in consultation with the program director. If student is continuing into a PhD program, Thesis units may be substituted with another elective course..

The MA Integral Health Life Physics specialization degree requirements, quarter units and required core courses are the same as the MA Integral Health program. To qualify for the specialization in Life Physics, students take specific elective courses designed to provide the graduate student with a solid foundation in research methodologies, anatomy and physiology, meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine and bio-energetic sciences.

In addition to the MA Integral Health core courses, the Life Physics specialization contains the following core electives.  Remaining elective quarter units are selected from the Life Physics electives.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Integral Health requires ninety-four (94) graduate quarter units, 72 units of course work including ten core courses (40 units), and 22 units of Dissertation sequence.  Core courses completed at the Masters level do not have to be repeated, and they may be applied toward the Doctoral course requirements to a maximum of 16 quarter units, except the Spiritual Education requirement is to be fulfilled at both Masters and Doctoral level.  Elective course units, beyond the core courses, may be completed by drawing upon the Integral Health, Comparative Religion and Philosophy, Life Physics and Psychology curricula.

 

Advancement to Candidacy is a formal step in the Ph.D. program. Eligibility for the Advancement to Candidacy examination consists of successful completion of all coursework (72 units) except IH 896, IH 897, and 2 research based papers.
