How are MUM’s Courses Unique?
MUM courses are unique because they integrate the knowledge of consciousness into each field of study, making the courses directly relevant to one’s life and personal development.
How Does MUM Develop the Whole Person?
Online learning from MUM is unique in that many of the courses are designed to provide not just knowledge for success in a job, but knowledge to enhance your personal growth for a lifetime. No other university in the world has such a comprehensive program to develop the whole person and their health and intelligence.
Is There Any Research on the Effects of the TM® technique on Learning?
The TM technique is a completely natural, universal and scientific way to develop the full potential of the brain and consciousness. Most colleges try to load the brain with more and more facts but do nothing to enhance the brain’s ability to learn. At MUM, by helping students develop the container of knowledge -- by developing consciousness -- students find their ability to learn grows. Over 600 scientific studies have verified the unique benefits of this meditation including studies on IQ, the brain and learning. The TM technique does not involve belief or any change in lifestyle to practice it.
