How does Maharishi Vedic Science prepare me for a career?
Like literature or philosophy, Maharishi Vedic Science is a liberal arts degree program that builds a strong basis for further development. A 2009 survey by the Association of American Colleges found that employers place the highest value on the following skills:
- Effective communication
- Critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills
- Ability to connect choices and actions to ethical decisions
- Teamwork skills and the ability to collaborate with others
- Ability to innovate and be creative
Maharishi Vedic Science develops your consciousness, creativity, and intelligence. It also enhances your thinking and communication skills, improves learning ability, and prepares you to be adaptable and handle stress more effectively. Graduates often say this degree is the basis of their personal and professional success and that it enhanced all of the above mentioned qualities.
Opportunity to become a Transcendental Meditation teacher
Students majoring in Maharishi Vedic Science can choose to receive training as a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation technique and earn academic credit toward their degree.
The David Lynch Foundation has taught the TM technique to over 120,000 at-risk youth in the U.S. and around the world, and is expanding their activities rapidly. The Foundation is looking to MUM as the principal source of new TM teachers.
