The ideal of Lifelong Learning courses is to meet the student right where they are. All courses are offered online in a structured 14-week format. Throughout the entire course, each student has direct access to the weekly lesson material, a community of students, and to the knowledgeable instructor. Each class experience is designed to speak to those who have a passion to live this life and the next to the fullest.
Most courses contain a practicum, case study, or project enabling the student to gain a better understanding of the coursework. A Certificate of Completion is available upon request once the student has successfully completed each course.
Almost all of the Transpersonal Studies courses offered at Atlantic University can be taken as part of the Lifelong Learning Program*. This is a great option for those who do not wish to pursue a degree or certificate but still want to participate in all that Atlantic University has to offer.
There are no prerequisite requirements for participation in these courses*. While the content of the Lifelong Learning courses are similar to the content in the degree program, these are of a less rigorous nature, do not have academic credit, and are not transferable to the Master of Arts degree program.
*The Integrated Imagery: Regression Hypnosis courses are excluded from the Lifelong Learning program. These courses are only offered as a part of the Masters in Transpersonal Studies or as a Graduate Certificate and have application strict criteria.
