Bachelor of Science Degree in Medium Studies
Not Yet Available
- The following degree program is not yet available. However, several courses are available now.

Mediumship is defined as the anomalous communication with immaterial entities most commonly referred to as apparitions (ghosts) or spirit guides, which are believed to have a form of consciousness and element of personality, or Nature, which some believe to be an aggregate of consciousness, or “universal consciousness,” assumed “friendly,” but possessing a neutral personality (i.e. behaviors, temperament, emotions, etc.). Assuming thought, or rather information, to be the basis of consciousness, this form of communication requires specific mental and universal processes by which experients utilize for information transference between the experient and immaterial entities, or the experient and Nature. These thoughts, or information, are transferred through intuitive, or emotional, modes or through several hallucinatory sensory modes including visual, auditory, olfaction, gustatory, and somatosensory modalities. Physical mediumship is a form of mediumship in which is defined as the influence of the energies and energy systems of spirits. The term physical medium suggests a medium with or without obvious psychical ability, which can be used as a source of “power” for spirit manifestations such as loud rapping and other noises, voices, materialized objects, materialized spirit bodies, or body parts such as hands, or the occurrence of levitation. Many mediums report the ability to not only assist spirits, which have or have not crossed-over, resolve unfinished issues with the living, but also assist those spirits that have not crossed-over on their journey to the afterlife.

10% of all UAS degree program proceeds are donated to a 501(c)(3) charitable organization for parapsychological research efforts.


:: Course 101 - Models of Psi Mediation

Addresses both classical and quantum mechanical modeling approaches to psi phenomena including those pertaining to the role of psi phenomena such as the psi-mediated instrumental response (PMIR) and relative need-serving qualities of psi, psychokinesis as a primary psi process, and psi as a product of evolution via Darwinian theory. Addresses classical models including electromagnetic models, energy field models, and the zero-point field model. Addresses associations of psi phenomena with quantum theory, and new approaches to such phenomena via quantum mechanical modeling. Addresses an elaboration on the essential role of quantum information theory in regards to psi phenomena, the view of computational living systems, the macroscopic challenge for quantum computation and psychical research, the quantum efficiency of psi, and the non-local communicative nature of psi. Addresses the part played by Nature in regards to the mediation of psi via a hypothesis addressing Nature as an experient accessible universal information processing and storage system with features of four dimensionalism. Addresses Geomagnetic entanglement, permanent and seemingly macroscopic entanglement, and quantum non-local communication in regards to psi.

:: Course 102 - Models of the Experiential Phase of Psi

Addresses the psychological aspects of how and when human beings are able to utilize psi through promising models including models involving quantum mechanical approaches to cognition, and memory models. Such models of psi manifestation attempt to explain how extrasensory information enters the central nervous system or information processing center, and how the system deals with that information. In regards to psychokinesis, such models attempt to explain what manner of information processing is taking place, and what the requirements for the information to be transmitted into the environment are. Addresses the biological utilization of non-local communication, the reverse direction problem, the binding problem, the human brain and neuro-quantum interactions, and brain stimulation via circumcerebral magnetic fields. Addresses the question whether a quantum-like approach is actually more advantageous over classical approaches, and addresses quantum mechanical principles, properties, and features resulting in cognitive effects related to content sensitivity, association, the human lexicon, and psychological function in general.Addresses quantum-like mental entanglement, how this new quantum mechanical approach is shedding light on an array of anomalous experimental results composed over the greater portion of a century, pseudo-sensory models, memory models involving memory theory and associated phenomenology, receptive psi processes, memory and psi processes, the first sight model, psi requirements, and the part played by the default mode network.

Addresses psychological profiling in parapsychology in regards to ESP and PK performance. Addresses increased reactivity to psychical stimuli due to anxiety, psychical and Myers-Briggs personality type correlations, and Mediumship associated personality types (e.g. Type I - Typical, Type II - Typical 2, Type III - Atypical, and Type IV - Atypical 2). Topics include associated psychological effects, and MBTI associated information. Also addressed is physiological health profiling involving physiological response to psychical stimuli per type, cognitive correlations, colorization (type) profiling, complexities of colorization, and the effects of colorization on the psychological system, physiological system, and the psychical system. Topics also include dichotomous aspects, and enhancement elements per type including detailed specifications. In addition, the placebo effect is addressed along with the benefits of colorization enhancement, and enhancement via socialization. Lastly, PsiMatics is addressed, which involves psychical enhancement via geometric patterns that can result in creating measurable electrical and magnetic fields, which may happen due to a process of amplification similar to the amplification associated with symbols utilized in several forms of alternative medical treatments. line
