The Science and Technology of Consciousness (STC) is a basic course in Consciousness-Based education that is the unique educational approach of Maharishi University of Management. Our university was inspired by the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a scientist and Vedic scholar from India. The practical aspect of STC is the Transcendental Meditation technique, a simple non-religious mental technique that produces positive effects on mental health, physical health, and social behaviors.

The goal of this course is for you to gain experience and understanding of consciousness as the unifying basis of all branches of knowledge. This course provides a foundation for all other courses you will take at Maharishi University of Management and introduces you to key ideas and terms relevant to your studies and to your experience here.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Understand the relationship between your individual self and your universal Self—the field of pure inner wakefulness, unbounded pure consciousness, at the source of thought.
- Use principles of the Science of Creative Intelligence to deepen your understanding of foundational principles in the arts, sciences, and humanities.
- Articulate how growth of consciousness and the study of inner subjectivity enrich education and other areas of life.
