This Masters track is for individuals who wish to become teachers of the Transcendental Meditation technique. It provides a deep understanding of fundamental principles of Maharishi Vedic Science, instruction in lecturing, and a course in checking Transcendental Meditation practice. The Teacher Training Course is part of the academic program, and its tuition can therefore be covered through financial aid. After the Teacher Training Course, students will take two distance education courses designed to further their success as a teacher of Transcendental Meditation.
The Teacher Training portion of the degree program is provided by Maharishi European Research University (MERU) under contractual arrangement with Maharishi University of Management. Students must apply for, and be accepted by, the Teacher Training Course Office for that portion of the program, in addition to application and acceptance to MUM for the degree program. For information on the Teacher Training Course application process, please contact Gwen Stowe in the MUM admissions office.
