School Details

Maharishi International University was founded in 1971 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to fulfill the highest ideals of education. Foremost among these ideals is developing the full potential of consciousness in every student — to help students develop the ability to think and act in harmony with nature and to live fulfilled and successful lives. 

MIU utilizes a unique approach to higher learning called Consciousness-Based education. This method systematically nurtures creative intelligence, the basis of student learning. Consciousness-Based education gives traditional academic studies the foundation of transcendental meditation combined with learning grounded in the universal principles of life. 

The university offers undergraduate and graduate programs in traditional and online formats. Programs incorporate experiential learning and core skills. Graduates will possess an education nurturing the whole person – consciousness, mind, body, and relationships.

The university prides itself on being radically different from traditional schools in ways including:

  • Self-discovery
  • Transcendental meditation
  • Full immersion courses
  • Healthy lifestyle
  • Innovative sustainability
