Creative Living University offers a wide array of classes for personal growth, spiritual development and the expansion of consciousness, and you can obtain degrees in the process.

As an affiliate campus of Emerson Theological Institute, we offer Associates, Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate Degrees in Religious Studies as well as Professional Practitioner and Religious Science Ministerial Credentials.

In addition to offering these standard degrees and credentials, we provide an environment where students may develop customized degree programs based upon their academic and spiritual goals. All customized degree or credential programs must meet Emerson Institute requirements.

If you have successfully completely other coursework and want credit consideration for it, please submit any of the following:

  • Diplomas and transcripts from schools you attended

  • Certificates of attendance from a teacher/facilitator for workshops, seminars, retreats and classes where official transcripts are not available
