University description (as per official university website)
Atlantic University offers a graduate program in transpersonal studies that is designed specifically for adults interested in exploring life and themselves, using innovative learning methods. This program is unique in that it introduces the student to the multiple dimensions of holistic living and encourages the process of personal growth. The degree program is available as a distance-learning program with limited, optional residential studies available. The interdisciplinary nature of the program provides students with a variety of learning experiences as well as exposure to alternative methods of education.
The distance-learning program of study uses established study guides as the basis for instruction. After registration, the student receives course materials via the Internet and is assigned to a member of the faculty, who serves as the mentor for the course. The normal mode of communication between the mentor and the student is through e-mail. (Students without Internet access will be accommodated.) Student-initiated phone conferences at periodic intervals during the course may be required.
The Eiji Kaneko Memorial Scholarship was established in 1995 by Joseph and Chiharu Frankoski in memory of their son, Eiji. This scholarship is awarded to MA students on the basis of financial need and academic achievement. In order to be eligible, a student must be classified with unconditional status and have earned at least six credit hours from Atlantic University.
