As of July 14, 2007, no longer accepting new students into the Esoteric and Hypnotherapy Degree Programs.
Purpose and Outcomes
The Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Hypnotherapy is designed to provide a structured background for those who wish to examine the broad applications of hypnosis. There is an emphasis on breadth, rather than depth of knowledge. Admissions AmPac welcomes applications for admission from mature adults who are desirous and capable of undertaking its educational program.
An Associate Degree or sixty (60) semester units of undergraduate credit of which at least thirty (30) units must be in general education. These requirements can be completed through a combination of any of the following methods:
1. Satisfactory completion of the CLEP, or any other standardized examination.
2. A demonstration of college level education achieved through work experience, special talents or training, an informal educational background, or by the life/work experience evaluation. AmPac may grant credit for prior experiential learning only if all of the following apply:
- Prior learning is equivalent to college or university level knowledge.
- The learning experience demonstrates a balance between theory and practice.
- The learning experience relates directly to the student’s degree program.
- The student documents each learning experience in writing.
3. Credit earned from other colleges and universities. All credits accepted for transfer must be documented by an official transcript. Submission of Coursework students may submit a maximum of two (2) papers per calendar month.
Time for Completion
A student must complete no less than five (5) courses per year of study. Graduation Requirements One hundred twenty (120) units of credit are required to graduate from the Bachelor’s Program, 30 units of which must be general education. Most students enroll in the Bachelor’s program after they have completed approximately two (2) years of college at another institution which is equivalent to approximately sixty (60) units of credit. The number of courses that are required to complete this degree is directly dependent on the number of units the student has completed in the past and is accepted for transfer or is awarded for prior learning
Earning Credit for Seminars and Trainings
For the purpose of the AmPac degree programs, seminars are defined as presentations by AmPac faculty or AmPac approved or sponsored events. In order to earn credit for a seminar or training, the student must create an original presentation paper based on the material taught at the event. Some instructors will have a prepared syllabus much like the one used for AmPac independent study courses. In that case, the student must prepare the paper according to the directions given by the instructor. Seminar course credit may be used as elective course credit at both the bachelor’s and doctoral level.
